Got a dinner party or celebratory get-together in the books? Impress your guests with these tasty bite-sized (and moreish) goodies. 

Pistachio pate

Whip up this zingy and fresh pate as a starter or in smaller individual jars as a classy canape that your guests will love. It’s sure to impress but it is also nowhere near as difficult as it may look to make (which is pretty much the ideal when cooking for many people). Serve with your favourite crudites, bread and crackers. 

Spring greens tart

You can’t go wrong with serving tarts for a canape, and this spring green variety is perfect for outdoor parties and alfresco dining. Tender and crisp spring vegetables paired with buttery pastry and topped with extra breadcrumbs make this a flavourful and texturally rich canape perfect for the warmer months. 

Vegan polenta bites

This is a canape to save if you want all the prep done before your guests arrive, so you can greet them with these delicious light bites. Crispy grilled polenta topped with juicy, sweet tomatoes and a tart tapenade is a dream for anyone who loves big, punchy flavours. 

Thai veggie skewers

Anything on skewers is a type of hors d’oeuvre, right? Well, these Thai-spiced veggies complete with a creamy, salty peanut dipping sauce are a great canape to pass around. They’re savoury and juicy, and the tofu takes on the marinade beautifully. It’s easy and quick to make but will be a definite crowd-pleaser. 

Vegan smoked salmon blinis

Real magic has been created here with these smoked salmon blinis, a great option for vegan and non-vegan guests alike. Using bell peppers and nori, the texture and salty and fishy taste of salmon has been recreated wonderfully. When paired with a smooth vegan cream cheese and a fluffy blini base, it’s unbeatable.
