Recipe: Gluten-Free Thai Eggplant Stir-fry #memorialday #gluten-free

Spring is here and the weather is finally warming up! With May just around the corner, we're getting excited to think about planning a Memorial Day party. Crunchmaster Crackers has a new recipe that looks so delicious, we decided to give it a dry run to see if it meets the challenge of healthy AND delicious. It absolutely does! I'm not sure I would have thought about avocado and eggplant together, but the flavors compliment each other really well. This time around we used the Crunchmaster Original Multi-Seed Crackers, which added a great texture and taste. I think we might try the Roasted Garlic Crunchmaster Crackers for some added kick, because I'm suck a garlic fanatic. All in all, it's really easy and I like the idea of having something a little fancier and intriguing for our guests!
