For some, throwing a dinner party or a cocktail party can be stressful, especially when your menu has to have dietary restrictions . For obvious reasons, everything you serve needs to be paleo (no one wants to double check the tray sign when reaching for a chocolate almond butter cup) - but, you want to please the non-paleo guests, too. You can do both in one fell swoop - and, you’ll likely prove to your non-paleo friends just how delicious and satisfying paleo can be.
Here are four amazing paleo cocktail party appetizers that are easy to prepare and will please all of your guests.
- Paleo Bruschetta
Ah, bruschetta. A true crowd pleaser. The perfect blend of fresh vegetables with crunchy toast keeps everyone coming back for seconds. Thanks to Base Culture sandwich bread, you can still have the critical toast component - cut slices in half, then toast them to a golden brown crunch. As for the tomato medley topping, you’ll need fresh vegetables such as red onion, basil, and roasted garlic. Mix with balsamic vinegar, EVOO, and salt and pepper, and voila! Pro party tip: Keep a bowl of the bruschetta mix with a spoon next to the toast, so guests can serve themselves all night long without the risk of the toast getting soggy.
- Grilled Peaches with Prosciutto
Everyone loves peaches, and everyone loves prosciutto! Take a few golden peaches and slice them into sizable chunks, then wrap them in a prosciutto hug. Set your grill to medium heat, then cook each side of the peach for 3-4 minutes. You’re going for a medium crunch to the prosciutto and a tender texture to the peaches.
- Paleo Party Mix
It’s always a good idea to have bowls of party mix out while your guests are mingling. Try Base Culture’s sticky granola, which is a customer favorite with its savory-sweet taste and larger chunks of dried fruits and nuts. Mix the granola in with other delicious seeds and nuts, such as walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and add a little extra salt for taste.
- Cinnamon Almond Butter and Apples
Try your own twist on celery and dip with apple slices and Base Culture cinnamon almond butter, which is made of pure almonds. Add a cinnamon stick into the almond butter bowl for garnish, and situate the apple slices to resemble a flower. It’s a beautiful and nutritious snack.
With Base Culture, you’re the host with the most! Party on.
