Gow Gee Hummus Cups and Lentil Celery Salad
I had hoped that Sylvia might like these but she preferred the cups separate from the vegies and hummus. At least she ate more than she did of the salad. Even though she was the one who inspired it.
More festive entertaining finger food from Green Gourmet Giraffe:
Cashew cheese stuffed dates (gf, v)
Pesto pita Christmas trees
Polenta quinoa sticks with rhubarb sauce (gf, v)
Sausage rolls (v)
Sesame hummus bites (gf, v)
Sushi with sticky walnuts and edamame (gf, v)
Tofu nut balls (v)
Lentil Celery Salad
adapted from Vegetarian Times
400g tin lentils, rinsed and drained
3 celery stalks, sliced
kernels of 1 cob corn
1 bunch asparagus, chopped small and lightly cooked
1 spring onion, thinly sliced
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 small garlic clove crushed
2 tsp seeded mustard
seasoning - pinch salt and grind of black pepper
Place all salad ingredients into a medium bowl. Either whisk the marinade ingredients or shake together in a jar (with the lid on). Mix into salad and serve. Can be kept overnight but the flavours mellow.
Gow Gee Hummus Cups
12 round gow gee wrappers
12 heaped tsp hummus
carrot, cucumber and cherry tomatoes
Lightly spray each gow gee wrapper with oil. Place oil side up over a hole in a mini muffin tin and push in, making a few folds so it neatly sits in the hole and the folds make it look a little like a flower. Repeat with remaining wrappers. Bake for 10-15 minutes at 200 C. Cool. Put a heaped teaspoon of hummus in each cup. Cut cherry tomatoes in half and press into some of the cups. Cut the carrot and cucumber into matchsticks and plant in the remaining gow gee cups.
NOTES: I bought my gee gaw wrappers from the supermarket and they were vegan. If you want them vegan and gluten free you could try this recipe. A couple of people have commented on never having heard of "gee gaw" wrappers - I checked again online and on the packet and it seems it is "gow gee" wrappers. Oops! Have edited the post. But I sort of like the word gee gaw (which actually means trinket or bauble).
