This is a recipe I played around with based on a video I watched on YouTube called: The Everyday Dish. Most hot, oven-baked dips, commonly served as appetizers at parties are made with egg, cheese or dairy. This came out better than I ever hoped!! I actually misread the original recipe and added LESS olive oil than originally called for, and it was still delightfully rich and creamy.
This recipe comes from vegetarian cookery writer Rose Elliot. She created it to sneak an extra veggie into her children's meals. This serves 2 as a side dish to a main course but if you want it as a snack you may want to double the dish.
I made these funky little corn cups for a community get-together last Saturday night, and they were one of the most popular snacks there, not a single one was left to take home. A good appetizer for veggies/vegans.
What a fast, different and delicious snack! This is *almost* no-cook... just warm it all in a foil pack in the oven and Bob's yer uncle! I omitted the red pepper flakes and subbed some mild chili powder, cumin and cajun spices this time. Recipe courtesy Ms. Ray.
This is my variation of Cowboy Caviar. My mother got it from a friend, and passed it on to me (thanks, Mom!). It is a favorite with my side of the family, and my in-laws enjoy it very well, too. It makes a pretty big batch, but you'll be surprised at how quickly it vanishes! Avocado will turn brown, so don't make this too far in advance.
A healthy and delicious appetizer/finger food adapted from Andrew Weil and Rosie Daley's The Heatlhy Kitchen. For the mushrooms, you can use shiitake, oyster or button. Other dried fruit could be substituted for the mango.
This recipe came from taste testing poppers all over. I combined what I liked and discarded the rest. You can use fresh peppers or prepackaged peppers (not recommended,to soft). If I use fresh, I sometimes like to slice them in half, leaving the stem, de-vein and seed them and saute' them in my favorite beer to soften them up just a little (2-4 minutes). Another tip is to always use protective cooking gloves when dealing with peppers.
