Making healthy food choices is so much harder when you have next to no energy left for cooking at the end of a long day.
I really love Saturday mornings. I wake up whenever I feel like it, mooch about in my pyjamas and fluffy dressing gown and savour the idea of the full two days of free time that lay ahead. I often start cooking a big dish of something warm and comforting before I have even had breakfast: a big pot of soup, a veggie lasagna, roast potatoes… Having delicious leftovers in the fridge makes the upcoming week so much easier!
I am by no means a vegetarian, but I try (and often fail) to avoid meat on a daily basis. So when I turned 25 last week and had some friends over to celebrate, I decided to keep the snacks meat-free. Judging from the complete and utter absence of leftovers (!), I think I can safely say that they were a success. Or that could just mean that I didn’t make enough food. Moving on!
I didn’t make anything complicated or fancy, but with simple ingredients and some nice dishware the whole evening felt special. I thought I’d share what I made so you have some ideas of vegetarian appetisers for your next party!
