Appetizers (again)

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I'm hoping some of you have recipes or ideas for gluten free, dairy free, soy free, and vegetarian appetizers. Quite a list of restrictions, I know, but my friend is vegetarian and I am the other three and we struggle to try and cook together. We're getting together on Saturday afternoon (two days from now), so any suggestions would be highly appreciated. We're both excellent cooks and she's a big of a foodie, so fancy is good. Or maybe I could pass off the easy classics as "retro cool" you think? ;)

I was considering lettuce wraps, but I'm struggling with vegetarian, soy-free fillings...just to get the ball rolling here.

Thanks in advance!

-Sally

Chebe Focaccia makes a great appetizer (I add olive oil, sea salt and tomatoes...then fresh basil after it's baked)

Here are a couple more ideas that I copied and pasted from other websites. I think meet your criteria :)

A vegetable plate is always a winner. You could stuff some of the vegetables with nut cheese or peanut butter. Hummus makes a nice dip. You could also make Texas Caviar. If you do a search you will find a ton of recipes for that. It's bascially black eyed peas mixed with things like chopped pepper and onion. Chips and salsa and/or bean dip is another option. Just make sure that the chips that you buy or the tortillas you use to make the chips do not have soybean oil in them. Some do. A tomato salad is nice too. Overlap slices of tomatoes, onions and basil leaves, then drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Hi Sally,

Try this! It's a real recipe, not a conversion. It's called Farinata and it's really easy, with ingredients of garbanzo bean flour, olive oil and water.

You can add olives, sage and/or caramelized onions.
