Healthy snack plate

Food & Recipes door thijs

People coming over for a drink, movie or just to chat a bit? You want to give them a snack and enjoy a the snacks yourself without cheating. It's hard to be a good host and try not to be too unhealthy at the same time. Here is a bit more fun and healthier way to treat your guest without the great classics like potato chips, fat cheeses or salted nuts. My selection for a healthy snack plate.

Salmon Sashimi. Very simple. Buy a piece of raw salmon (you don't need a big chunk, about 150 grams for 3 to 4 people). Cut the salmon in small slices and top them with sesame seeds.

Seaweed-Tuna-Kale rolls. Open a can of tuna and add wasabi and olive oil (as much as you like). It's around two or three tablespoons of the tuna mix on one roll. Top it with a little bit of kale and roll it up!!

Lentils with spinach and stock. Lentils are a great source of healthy carbs. They are very filling and are rich in protein at the same time. You can buy these in a can or cook them fresh. I used a can this time, because I was a bit in a rush. If you use fresh lentils you need to let them soak for a long time. Cook the lentils until they are warm and soft. Add two to three hands per can of fresh spinach. To add taste I used a stock cube chicken flavoured. If you do not want to use that, flavour it with salt and pepper.

Crushed chickpea's with spinach and herbs. Chickpeas are a great source of healthy carbs too. Chickpeas are used to make falafel or veggie burgers (I made one last week teehee). Crus the chickpeas to small chunks and grill them in the pan together with fresh chopped spinach. If the chickpeas turn a bit goldenbrown add coriander or rosemary (what you prefer).



Grilled chicken stripes with Cajun. Cut a chicken breast in slices and marinate them with Cajun herbs. Grill them in the pan until they are well done.


Fresh Cucumber. 
This actually is also a classic. The fresh cucumber. Simply cut them in slices and crunch away! ;)


How to serve the food?

You can use small plates for everyone, or you prepare a big plate where everybody can snack from. Add small forks to eat, and small spoons to scoop. You can tell them it's a kind of shared dining concept ;) OOHH and dont forget the soy sauce to dip in!! Check out more healthy snacks by my fellow Fit Girl Annegeke!
