You can whip up this super-easy appetizer the next time unexpected guests drop in, with just a few pantry items. Perfect with pre-dinner drinks.
Smoked Salmon Bites
We named this lightning because you can make it a flash! In the true Italian manner, the dish is sparsely sauced keeping the emphasis on the pasta. Buy a bag of prewashed baby spinach to keep the preparation time down.
Grilled Tandoori Naan Sandwich
You love Indian flavours- now try them in a sandwich!
Creamy Red Pepper Spread with Dippers
Put the kids to work peeling the garlic and juicing the lemon, and prepare for a week’s worth of lunches or after school snacks!
Rotisserie Chicken and Cranberry Sandwiches
Leftover chicken and cranberry sauce are meant for each other. Using whole wheat tortillas bumps up the fibre.
Fresh and easy- a perfect summertime salad. Use a pint of cherry tomatoes, halved, instead of vine-ripened tomatoes, if you prefer.
A classic Italian salad, originally from the island of Capri. It’s perfect in summer when local tomatoes and basil are at their best, and you don’t want to spend lots of time in the kitchen!
Caramel Chocolate Ice Cream Waffles
The classic caramel and chocolate combination, highlighted in an open-faced ice cream sandwich.
A quick, economical dish with tons of flavour. Many quesadillas are grilled or pan-fried, but it’s much easier to bake them. Olé!
Puff Parmesan Crisps
The perfect nibble to accompany a glass of wine! Up the cayenne if you like things spicy.
