    Healthy Xmas Buffet Ideas

    OK at Xmas at my mum's we always end up having a buffet at night to make things 'easier' *cough* and party-style, unfortunately this tends to happen every night and is bursting at the seams with syns.

    So I thought Id start a thread where we can all put ideas for healthy SW-friendly buffet style stuff.

    Ill start with:

    - Home-made syn free hummus
    - Smash-bread (from the cobbler thread) - use it as garlic bread, dips for hummus, to make Marmite/other flavoured whirls etc (That thread is a gem in itself! )
    - Free/low syn Dips
    - Low-fat sausages on sticks
    - Lean cold meat slices
    - Pickles/pineapple on sticks
    - Homemade piccalilli
    - Spicy SW wedges
    - SW onion bhajis/samosas/pakoras etc
    - Spicy chicken fajita pieces
    - SW friendly coleslaws/potato salads

    Any ideas, add 'em to the list!!! Let's see if we can make a ma-hoosive SW-friendly Xmas buffet!

    Healthy Xmas BUFFET

    I've realised I should probably have called this "Healthy Xmas BUFFET" rather than snacks else I am probably going to get eternally diverted to the numerous snacks threads... Is it possible a mod could change the title? I am specifically looking for buffet-style food, not just general SW-snacks.

    You can edit your own posts!

    You may edit and change the title of your thread yourself by going into the forum where your thread is and clicking anywhere right of the title name and a box will appear like magic...then you can edit your title.

    Or go to the first post of your thread and click edit and then click go advanced...you can now change the title.
    It's not about being better than others, it's about being better than YOU use to be.

    A person of words and not deeds is like a garden full of weeds.

    Ah I never knew there was an Advanced bit, I could only ever edit content not the title. You learn something new every day. Thanks for that x

    ^^^I didn't have Bombay spice mix so used a mix of curry powder, garam masala and fennel seeds. 1 tsp of each.

    Ooooh!!! Here are my ideas;

    * Figs quartered and wrapped in prosciutto and held together with a toothpick. You can add a sliver of cheddar in each parcel too
    * Spicy chicken wings and "blue cheese" dressing (get skinned chicken wings from your local butcher, and blue cheese dressing is just laughing cow blue cheese mixed with yogurt and chives)
    * Corn cobettes (either steamed or grilled)
    * Massive SW quiche that you can cut thick wedges from
    * Lentil & mushroom loaf (I've seen the recipe floating around here)
    * Puy lentil salad!
    * Roasted vegetable salad (rosemary roasted squash, peppers, courgettes, aubergines, red onions, served on a bed of spinach and drizzled with balsamic vinegar)
    * Mung bean wraps, filled with whatever you like and cut into rounds (quark, tomatoes & basil is a lovely simple filling)
    * Potato salad (Mix one part light mayo with 4 parts low fat plain yogurt for your dressing OR just use hummus instead of mayo!)
    * Roasted plantain (cut into diagonal slices, S&P and roasted until golden brown. Great to dip in hummus too! This always goes down a treat!)
    * Olives
    * BIG platter of hummus and other dips with veg crudites and roasted potato wedges
    * Joe's mini chipolatas
    * Devilled eggs (very retro lol)
    * Patatas bravas (Spanish potatoes in tomato sauce)
    * Grilled prawns
    * Crab dip (crab meat, low fat plain yogurt, light mayonnaise, light philadelphia, paprika, chopped celery, chopped gherkins)
    * Platter of smoked salmon with lemon, capers and a dollop of quark mixed with chives
    * SW scotch eggs
    * Bruschettas on slices of potato instead of ciabatta (tomatoes, balsamic & basil OR mashed up peas & mint are nice toppings)
    * Loaded potato skins
    * Couscous salad
    * Platters of chopped fruit
    * Pineapple pieces or strawberries mixed with fresh chopped mint and sugar
    * Mini meringues topped with Greek yogurt and fruit
