Parties are organized to celebrate something or to gather with dear people and friends. For everyone to be happy and enjoy themselves, there should be a nice party decoration, refreshing drinks and delicious party snacks on the table. And since people have different tastes, you should remember that there are guests who do not eat meat. Sometimes it’s hard to think of something vegetarian to eat, especially if you’re not a vegetarian yourself. To make it easier for you, we have prepared two recipe ideas for vegetarian party snacks that will also taste good to non-vegetarians. Have a look at them first, write down the ingredients and go to geht´s for loading.
Quick and easy to prepare, these balls are the healthier alternative to meatballs. To make them easy to eat without cutlery, form small balls and place toothpicks next to them. To prepare approx. 50 pieces, you need the following ingredients:
1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
2 cups chickpeas
1 small onion, chopped small
1 bunch fresh herbs (dill, parsley, basil or mixed), finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp buckwheat flour
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp caraway
1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
Line the large baking tray with baking paper and sprinkle with a little oil.
Chop the pumpkin seeds in a blender for about 30 seconds. Add the remaining ingredients and let it run for another 1 to 2 minutes.
Form nut-sized balls and place them on the baking tray. Tip: Prepare a small bowl with water and slightly moisten your hands from time to time. This will prevent the dough from sticking to your hands. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes until the balls have a golden brown crust.
A delicious finger food idea that will please all pumpkin fans. For 3 portions you will need the following:
300 g Hokkaido pumpkin, cleaned
1 ripe avocado
200 g Mozzarella
14 tbsp sour cream
1 clove of garlic
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp yoghurt
1 tsp paprika powder, hot
1 dash of Tabasco
salt and pepper
Clean pumpkin, cut into slices and, depending on size, reduce again. Spread on a baking tray covered with baking paper and salt. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for about 20 minutes.
Remove the seeds from the avocado, peel and cut into thick pieces, a bit as big as the pumpkin pieces. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Halve the mozzarella and cut into pumpkin pieces. Peel and press the garlic clove. Mix well with yoghurt, sour cream, salt, pepper, tabasco and paprika. Then assemble the snacks in order: warm pumpkin, mozzarella, 1 teaspoon cream and avocado. Fix the canapés with a toothpick or skewer, place in plates and season with salt and pepper if desired.
Prepare both recipes with much love and please your vegetarian guests and not only them with tasty party snacks. More ideas can be found in our picture gallery.
