Broccomole Dip Recipe! | Rivertowns Moms

We love celebrity nutritionist Joy Bauer’s book, Yummy Yoga.  It matches recipes kids can make (and eat!) with whimsical illustrations of produce doing yoga poses, making it a great activity while we’re spending more time at home.  Try this recipe for Broccomole, a veggie-filled dip that is great as a quick snack or a fiber-rich addition to Taco Night!
