When it comes to the holidays, I get most excited about the parties (and the food at them!) With a little inspiration, your holiday party can be rocking some wonderful veg-friendly snacks. While you can start with a solid cheese board and some olives, step your game up with the help of some dips, bites, and flatbreads.
I love a good dip and it’s amazing what you can make with a few vegetables and some legumes. Puree cooked carrots or beets for a beautiful color. Toss in handfuls of fresh herbs. And when all else fails, go for a delicious cheese sauce (that could even be vegan!)
I feel like everyone could use a few easy recipes to reach for when guests are coming over. For fun snacks, popcorn is one of my go-to items. It’s easy to whip up and the flavor combinations are endless. This also goes for nuts too. So many ways you can spin such simple ingredients.
There’s nothing I’ve really run into that I don’t love on toast. During the cooler months, whipped vegetables and cheese are usually my go-to. Below is just a start and if you’re looking for something similar but non-bread based, I love how easy endives are!
Finally, for a little more work, you can whip up flatbreads. Make these recipes easier by using premade dough. Look for this dough in the freezer or cooler sections of your local grocery store.
