Cocktail Food That Works No Matter What You Can’t Eat
Your gluten-free best friend, your vegan sister-in-law, and your neighbor who just can’t do sugar are all coming over for drinks. Pleasing them all is easier than you might think: These four eclectic, crowd-pleasing hors d’oeuvre recipes—paleo-friendly yellowfin lettuce wraps, gluten-free tostadas, vegan butternut squash dip, and sugar-free espresso truffles—will thrill every one of your guests.
These quick and easy lettuce wraps are a warm weather standby for chef Greg Baxtrom when he’s entertaining on his days off. They’re also delicious with grilled rib eye instead of the yellowfin. Using a mandoline to slice the veggies makes prep a cinch.
These tostadas are a great after-school snack or an easy weeknight dinner the whole family will love. If you don’t have time to fry the tortillas, you can buy premade tostadas at most grocery stores.
We’re always looking for great dip recipes, and this unique pickled butternut squash one is a new favorite. Heads up: This makes a lot of dip, so feel free to halve or even quarter the recipe.
An amped-up version of our detox truffles, these ones, made with espresso powder, are the perfect holiday dessert. They’re easy, free of refined sugar, and always a crowd-pleaser.
