These nibbles are very easy to make and look great too. Skewer a protein (like tofu, cottage cheese, chicken or lamb) with vegetables like olives, onions, tomatoes and bell peppers and add in some cheese as a garnish. Grill them after tossing on some olive oil with seasoning and spices for a snack that’s east to eat and tasty to boot.
These classic Italian brown bread bruschettas are a huge hit, and can be made using roasted cherry tomatoes, garlic, herbs, olives and mozzarella.
Game food is incomplete without French fries—something everyone loves. Rather than frying them up, bake them in the oven for a healthier version, and sprinkle some fresh parsley for added flavour. Don’t forget to serve the fries with a cheesy dip or the good old tomato sauce.
An absolute favourite, you simply can’t go wrong with a cheese pizza. Though homemade pizza recipes abound, your local pie shop is bound to have offers on pizza right now so you may as well sit back and call it in. Don’t forget to stock up on paper tissues and offer your guests chilli flakes and oregano shakers.
Traditional samosas are also a great option for a get-together. You could make them at home with fun fillings (like a pizza filling that includes tomato and green bell peppers with cheese) or go the age-old way of ordering them in from your favourite Indian fast-food joint, but make sure you serve them with coriander or tamarind chutney or even ketchup to keep the compliments coming.
