Nourishing nibblies for relaxed entertaining
Nicole Fetterly, RD
These holiday appetizers look elegant, but they're made with whole food ingredients that make them as healthy as they are attractive.
Entertaining during the holiday season doesn’t have to mean loading up on rich foods that leave you ready for a nap an hour into the party. Vegetable-focused holiday appetizers go beyond the simple appies platter. They’ll impress your guests while leaving them feeling satisfied, not satiated. The general rule of thumb is five appetizers per person if there is an entrée course to follow. If you’re planning a finger food evening, aim for 10 appies per person plus a dessert course. While the Tempeh Cabbage Rolls take a little extra work, they're worth it. A little planning, and you've got the recipe for a successful evening of entertaining with these delicious holiday appetizers.
