It's football season, back to school days, and fall festivals are happening. That means lots of get-togethers with friends and family. BLENDABELLA by Giorgio is the product you need to make your favorite foods even more delicious. It's the new way to enjoy diced Portobello mushrooms that are perfectly blended with savory vegetables and herbs. There are three varieties that include Zesty Mexican, Rustic Tuscan and Coconut Thai. We took two of our favorite dips, hummus and guacamole and added flavorful BLENDABELLA to make them even more savory. Check out the recipes we are entering in the BLENDABELLA Recipe Challenge and enjoy dipping!
