    OK at Xmas at my mum's we always end up having a buffet at night to make things 'easier' *cough* :rolleyes: 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! :drool: )
    - 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! :cool:

    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.

    ^^^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 :D
    * 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

    :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool:
