This is a sponsored post for Ryvita and Digital Parents Collective (S1 post)
I’ve enjoyed Ryvita crisp bread for many years. Recently, I’ve been keeping a food diary as part of a fitness challenge I’m doing, and you can see Ryvita popping up in my diet as a meal, snack or sprinkled on soup. I really enjoy the taste, crunch, convenience and the simple ingredients (Wholegrain Rye Flour & Salt). Plus I find the size of the crisp bread helps with portion control.
This week, one of my favourite Ryvita topping recipes is featured in the Woman’s Day Magazine. For no other reason but for an opportunity to be creative AND it’s cool, I made this animation (click below to play it). Miss 12 did the honours of eating this beauty for me (this is one of her favourite combinations too).
Ryvita, Brie, Raspberries, Mint
I’m writing this post as part of Ryvita’s topped to perfection campaign. There are so many combinations I love and I’m sharing some of my favourites below. So seriously good. You can check out the Ryvita Australia Facebook page for more ideas.
Cream cheese & strawberry jam
Cream cheese & blueberry
Vegemite & cottage cheese
Tomato tuna & spinach
Cucumber & ham
Banana smash & honey
Brie, raspberry & mint
Peanut butter & banana
Tomato & cheese
Avocado, cherry tomato & black cracked pepper
Sometimes you need to inject interesting and gorgeous food combinations into the mix. Have you ever tried jam and cheese; vegemite and lettuce; peanut butter and syrup? I like those combinations too.

Vegemite and strawberry jam.
MeredithFebruary 19, 2014 at 4:36 am
Yum that looks amazing! I’m more of a dip fan myself but I can’t resist string cheese and red grapes on crackers…brings back church camp memories. : )
Mary PrestonFebruary 19, 2014 at 10:50 am
Sardines & iceberg lettuce – the lettuce is crisp & fresh – a perfect foil for the tasty morsels of fish.

I like sweet gherkins sliced (the ones available in jars) with cheese on crispbread. It has the perfect mix of tanginess with the gherkins and I love cheese! It’s simple and quick – and it’s easy to store in the fridge for a quick snack because both gherkins and cheese stay fresh in the fridge for a while. 🙂
SamwaFebruary 24, 2014 at 3:47 pm
Have you tried gherkin relish? A favourite breakfast of mine is crackers with a slice of ‘plastic’ cheese and gherkin relish spread on top!
Stephanie VeljanovskaFebruary 19, 2014 at 12:46 pm
Ajvar (Macedonian red pepper relish) and Bulgarian feta it so delicious and I have been craving it so much but I am pregnant and can not have it because of the Feta :(.
JennyFebruary 19, 2014 at 2:05 pm
a spread of philly cheese with salmon and cucumber – yum!
Jocelyn RFebruary 19, 2014 at 8:21 pm
I love Dill, cream cheese and thinly sliced capsicum – its my favourite snack and not toooo bad for me!
CarielleFebruary 19, 2014 at 9:27 pm
Years ago I heard someone say you could microwave Ryvita! Turns out vegemite and cheese, blitzed in the microwave for 10seconds is AMAZING on Ryvita. Try it!
Kelly Be A Fun MumFebruary 19, 2014 at 10:10 pm
Oh goodness! Thanks for sharing!
Sara WFebruary 19, 2014 at 10:22 pm
I really love chicken, avocado and cranberry sauce. Its so fresh but familiar and delicious!
Julie WFebruary 19, 2014 at 11:54 pm
A yummy topping would be refried beans and guacamole. For a great ‘nacho’ taste on a Ryvita instead of a corn chip. Better for you too!
karina LFebruary 20, 2014 at 4:50 pm
Cream cheese and smoked salmon. Best combo ever!
Tania carlingFebruary 20, 2014 at 5:21 pm
Look the ideas, will be giving them a try.
I love making a mini pizza on mine with some sauce, and any toppings then add some grated cheese and very lightly grill just to melt the cheese a bit.
Lorna MFebruary 20, 2014 at 5:54 pm
Vegemite top with Avocado, Yummo!
Nicole kentFebruary 20, 2014 at 6:02 pm
I love avocado, ham, feta and jalapeños. It satisfies the pregnancy cravings and gives me the salty, bitey hit I love!
cathFebruary 20, 2014 at 6:23 pm
I love blue cheese and fig,the cheese adds a bite,and the fig a delight. “Gettin’ Figgi Wit It”
reneeFebruary 20, 2014 at 7:07 pm
smoked cheese and cherry tomatoes work well
Kasey EvansFebruary 20, 2014 at 7:15 pm
Vegemite & avocado….sounds odd but they balance each other out & taste fantastic!!!!
Diana OFebruary 20, 2014 at 7:27 pm
Butter spread really thick 🙂
DiFebruary 20, 2014 at 7:47 pm
Salami and dill gherkins. Works so well because it’s quick, easy and utterly delicious 🙂
sam santilloFebruary 20, 2014 at 9:46 pm
cheese and vegemite , yum !!
Amanda GortonFebruary 20, 2014 at 10:03 pm
Turkey breast, tzatziki, and light cheese….its lunch without carb-guilt!
Jennifer B.February 20, 2014 at 10:09 pm
Mashed avocado for the spread topped with crispy fried diced bacon and strips of roasted red capsicum! Colour, crunch, smooth, salty… DELICIOUS!
Glenda BoothFebruary 21, 2014 at 12:21 am
Love rare roast beef,horseradish cream and slices of tomato.Yummy!
Natasha foxFebruary 21, 2014 at 10:24 am
My fave is old fashioned and plain but nothing beats butter, sliced tomatoe and cracked pepper 🙂
Narelle RockFebruary 21, 2014 at 12:01 pm
ricotta cheese, roasted capsicum and red onion with a sprinkle of salt and pepper, healthy and so delicious!
MichelleFebruary 21, 2014 at 12:12 pm
Recently, hummus! I love the roasted red pepper flavor, and chickpeas are full of iron and protein!
mellie janeFebruary 21, 2014 at 1:48 pm
Whole egg mayo, chicken and snow pea sprouts so delish.
Hayley WebbFebruary 21, 2014 at 2:16 pm
Yummy healthy tucker for me and the family!
Helga GrenkowitzFebruary 21, 2014 at 3:02 pm
Butter and cheese
Melanie FarrugiaFebruary 21, 2014 at 3:13 pm
tomato paste, tuna and pickle onions. Its like a gourmet shop in your mouth
Shelley O'SullivanFebruary 21, 2014 at 3:15 pm
I love dipping granny smith apples in peanut butter. So I don’t see why it wouldn’t taste great on ryvita!
Mrs BFebruary 21, 2014 at 4:42 pm
Avocado, poached chicken, cranberry sauce, swisse cheese and toasted pinenuts. The textures are a great mix and add such variety, and the savoury nuts and sweet cranberry sauce just make it a lunch to definitely look forward to.
KimFebruary 22, 2014 at 9:35 am
It sounds weird, but I love cold leftover sweet potato on sandwiches, Ryvita’s etc, with a drizzle of mayonaise and some cracked black pepper on the top. It is my all time favourite!!!!
ClareFebruary 22, 2014 at 10:25 am
Can’t go past plain old butter and vegemite. Yum!
Maria PFebruary 22, 2014 at 10:25 am
My mother-in-law’s home made pickled eggplant! She adds garlic, chilli, celery, olive oil and spices. The eggplant melt in your mouth.
SonyaFebruary 22, 2014 at 9:01 pm
I love love love thick raspberry jam and extra bitey vintage cheddar. Sounds a little weird but it’s the best!
Nic T.February 22, 2014 at 9:03 pm
My favourite topping, for Ryvitas and pizzas alike, is mashed banana and crispy bacon. The two different textures and the sweet/salty combination works brilliantly. Please try it, people!
sapnaFebruary 22, 2014 at 10:58 pm
Cream cheese, banana, pistachios, cinnamon and honey are favourite toppings in our family.
This is how i love to make it……
– spread some cream cheese over the Ryvita crispbread to start with .
-A few round slices of bananas were placed on top.
-sprinkle some chopped pistachios .
– a sprinkle of cinnamon and a drizzle of honey.
This combination works for us because everyone in the family loves it and eat it happily.
Kristy HendersonFebruary 23, 2014 at 11:11 am
Love the gherkin spread with cream cheese spread, tomato, , cocktail onions, kabana with slice cheddar cheese on top of everything with black pepper on top Yummo!!!!
Trish MLDBFebruary 23, 2014 at 1:50 pm
Popeye’s delight – spread Ryvita with avocado, top with baby spinach leaves, sliced tomato (or cherry toms) and cracked salt/black pepper – then drizzle with balsamic vinegar glaze (thick)
It contains healthy fats, greens (iron) and a fruit in a quick tasty combination that is delicious on the lips but light on the hips.
Sheryl McAuleyFebruary 23, 2014 at 6:17 pm
Cream cheese, smoked salmon, dill and capers with a squeeze of lemon – a decadent treat which always puts a smile on my face!
monicaFebruary 23, 2014 at 6:36 pm
Spinach, hommus, goji berries, chia seeds…power packed super foods delight!
AmberBFebruary 23, 2014 at 8:23 pm
I love Hummus and Raw Capsicum – healthy, tasty, and lots of texture.
Rebekah BallingallFebruary 23, 2014 at 10:23 pm
Vegemite & Avocado
Karla OleinikoffFebruary 23, 2014 at 10:35 pm
Turkey, cranberry sauce and camembert. Everything just matches perfectly, and it’s just a little bit posh!
KarleneFebruary 23, 2014 at 11:47 pm
For morning tea at work it’s either crunchy peanut butter or vegemite as they’re fast to swipe on in the mornings and doesn’t need to be refrigerated.
CatalinaFebruary 24, 2014 at 8:13 am
feta cheese crumbles and bacon bits with mustard, I like the salty combination
marilynFebruary 24, 2014 at 9:38 am
smoked salmon, cream cheese and cucumber is a very special can’t afford it very often scrumptous topping
hummus is a healthy , no fuss and enjoyable every day pleasure
AmandaFebruary 24, 2014 at 9:56 am
I love plain old cottage cheese and tomato. Nice and fresh
tracy lynessFebruary 24, 2014 at 10:03 am

tracy weddingFebruary 24, 2014 at 11:51 am
