I could live off of gluten-free appetizers and plan to do just that this Christmas! Our family tends to make holidays a marathon of eating and I love to bring my own appetizers that are gluten, soy and dairy free. So, when dinner rolls around I have no problem pushing away foods that don’t work for me.
One of my favorite appetizers to bring along is my Seafood Stuffed Mushrooms. These are a meal in themselves but at the same time, they make an amazing impression for holiday starters. My other all-time favorite is hummus and veggies. I’ve experimented with several versions and will share them all, in time, but this one is so perfect for the holidays.
Pumpkin is bountiful in the fields and the smell is in the air these days, so why not! I like making my own pumpkin puree and freezing it in small portions. Then it’s ready any time a recipe calls for pumpkin puree, like my Red Curry Pumpkin Soup or my Pumpkin Bread or this Spicy Pumpkin Hummus. Slice up some seasonal veggies or whip up a batch of my Chili Pepper Crackers and dig in. I can’t say I’ve invented this amazing combination but the little extras I add make this one stand out among its competitors!
