Spicy Popcorn

Not strictly a canape, I know, but I have just discovered homemade popcorn. I can’t argue that I am very late with my discovery and I know everyone already knows it’s fantastic, but I agree, it is quite fantastic. Seeing those little yellow nuggets of hard corn grow and almost pop into life. White, fluffy and almost calorie free is nothing short of miraculous. And what’s more - it’s delicious and almost as quick to make as reaching for a packet of crisps. So if you have not found it already, why not be healthy and virtuous and give the recipe a try. Feel free to add your own flavouring, the one below is just one of many ideas. Ingredients - serves a few or just one or two, just depend

Prawn Toasts

This recipe is a healthy take on the delicious prawn toasts we all love. Instead of deep fried, the toasts are oven baked - so they can be enjoyed in great numbers with a clear conscience. They freeze too which means you can feast on them anytime you want and they fit Canapease criteria of being made ahead. Ingredients - makes 8 100g raw prawns 1 tbsp egg white 2tsp chopped ginger 1 small spring onion, finely chopped 0.5 tbsp light soy sauce Seasoning 2-3 tbsp sesame seeds 2 thin slices white bread - the cheap stuff is fine here Vegetable oil Method Heat oven to 190°c.

Basil and Pinenut Dip

It's Spring at last and to celebrate its very late arrival (and so we don’t need to spend too much time in the kitchen when we want to be outside), this dip is extremely quick and very easy to put together.

Ingredients 25g fresh basil 50g toasted pinenuts 50g grated pecorino cheese 60ml sour cream 10ml lemon juice 0.5 garlic clove, crushed. 80ml mild olive oil Method Roughly chop the basil and then put it into a food processor to chop some more.

Lemon grass chicken cakes

I love the citrussy, slightly grassy flavour of the lemongrass in these chicken cakes. It gives them a tropical, on holiday sort of feel. They are light, full of taste and of course, they are quick and make ahead. Just throw all the ingredients into a food processor and in a couple of minutes they are done. The slightly messy bit is making the little cakes. It definitely helps to wet your hands to mold them. Ingredients - makes 16 150g chicken breast 1 lemongrass stalk 0.5 clove garlic 1 salad onion 10g chopped coriander 1 small red chilli, finely chopped 10g breadcrumbs Zest of half a lemon 1 tbsp beaten egg 1 tbsp fish sauce 2 tsp dark soy sauce 5g ginger, finely chopped Vegetable oi
