Christmas nibbles: 3rd December and Easy Peasy soup

Our Spade to plate group is running out of food in the allotment, but we are looking at the other side of this weekly event. The harvesting has been good but the being together, cooking and eating has been lovely. So for now we shall focus on this part until next season when we hope the allotment and garden will once again give us an abundance of lovely organic food.

We made some Easy Peasy Soup as it is a wonderful standby soup, for busy households.

We also made some Christmas nibbles

Food ideas for Christmas nibbles:

tomato, basil and mozzerella kebabs

Brie, veggie bacon and walnut puffs

Mince pies with puff pastry

In addition we made this a veggie Christmas Tree for those of us who want a gluten, dairy, nut free healthy nibble

and some hummus as a base for a dip.

Low fat hummus with yoghurt

What You'll Need

1 15-ounce can of chickpeas (or garbanzo beans, drained; save liquid)
1 to 2 cloves garlic (crushed)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tablespoon peanut butter
1/2 cup plain yogurt
Blend all and serve

Hopefully this will get us in Christmas spirit.

Bon Appetite!
