DIY party combos - Greek style

Greek Party Food s

  • courgettes

  • feta cheese

  • green olives

  • fresh mint leaves

  • fresh red chilli

This forkful has a Greek vibe to it that really works. Use a speed peeler to peel a courgette into ribbons. If you can get different colours of courgettes then having those colours together on the fork is a really nice touch. Take two ribbons in your hand and add a small chunk of feta cheese, a destoned green olive, a mint leaf and a tiny sprinkle of finely chopped fresh red chilli. Wrap everything up in the courgette ribbons then stab with a fork.



Also try:

Fig, mozzarella and Parma ham

Smoked salmon with horseradish and beetroot

Bresaola with mustard and coleslaw

Prawns and Marie Rose sauce

Super easy
Method

There's nothing complicated at all about this party food. Just get a whole tray of forks together and lay out your ingredients. The ideas I'm giving you are simply for things I think go really well together, but if there are certain combos you love, get those going too. The beauty of these wonderful forkfuls is that they can be rattled out in no time flat. So you can make them as you're chatting to your guests, or rope your partner or mate into rattling 10 or 20 out. It's about putting things you like the taste of together, on a fork or in a spoon… Simple!

Nutritional Information Amount per serving:

Calories

Calories are just a unit of energy. If you eat more than you use you can gain weight, or lose it if you don't eat enough. How much you need depends on your weight, gender and how active you are, but it's around 2,000 a day.

Carbs

Carbs are a great source of energy and, excluding foods such as potatoes, are made from grains - like bread, pasta and cereal. We all need carbs, but try to make them all wholegrain by sticking to brown bread, rice and pasta - they are much more nutritious.

Sugar

We all deserve a treat sometimes, but try to limit your sugar intake. Most of your sugar should come from raw fruit and milk, because they give us lots of nutrients too. Always check food labels so you know how much sugar you're eating.

Fat

We all need to eat a small amount of fat because it protects our organs and helps us grow. But we need to be careful about how much fat we eat and what kinds of fat, because in higher levels it's associated with weight gain, diabetes, cancer and heart disease.

Saturates

Saturated or "bad fats" are in beef, pork, chicken skin, butter, cream and cheese. Too much can be bad for our heart and cholesterol levels, but unsaturated or "good fats" in fish, nuts, avocados and some oils can help keep our hearts healthy if eaten in moderation.

Protein

Protein helps our muscles to grow and repair, as well as providing you with essential amino acids. When it comes to protein, try to eat leaner sources such as chicken and fish or non-meat sources such as eggs, dairy, beans, nuts, seeds, tofu and pulses.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
