Gluten Free/Vegetarian Hors D' Oeuvres Suggestions
Some friends and myself are getting together for Sunday night fancy mac n' cheese. Does anyone have ideas for hors d' oeuvres for that are both gluten free and vegetarian? Thanks!
This is a favorite of mine. Not sure about the miso -- I think barley miso is not gluten-free, but many others can be. It's a mushroom - lentil - walnut paté from Totally Dairy-Free Cooking by Louis Lanza. The recipe is currently here:
It's pretty forgiving, so don't worry too much if you have to fudge it a little. I recommend using a mortar and pestle (and a little coarse salt) to grind the bay leaf; you can cook the lentils (I recommend Du Puy) with a bay leaf also. I often serve it with something wheat-based, but it's great with rice crackers; I'm sure you can find gluten-free ones.
- gazpacho shooters
- artichoke tapenade
- sun-dried tomato & olive tapenade
- bean dip (fava, black bean, white bean, hummus...)
- tomatoes, peppadews, mushrooms and/or baby zucchini stuffed with herbed ricotta or chevre
- polenta "fries" with dipping sauce
- spiced, roasted chickpeas
- spiced nuts
any of the dips or spreads can be served on cucumber rounds or GF crackers, or with crudites for dipping.
