Personally, I love that word. It makes me feel special saying it. Quite simply, a canapé is a type of appetizer – generally small and bite-sized – consisting of a decorate type of bread, puff pastry, cracker, or chip – holding a delicious savory food.
There aren’t really limits. You can go for bread, crackers, tortilla chips or phyllo cups! Speaking of no limits, I have a party recipe solution without any limits! Surely you have non-meat-eating or just veggie-loving friends and family. I know I have both! That’s why I’m happy that MorningStar Farms® has so many great options. In fact, here’s an Ibotta offer:
How great is that? I generally buy a few products at a time for gatherings. Right now, we are so thick in the middle of holiday parties/gatherings/get-togethers/parties. And don’t forget just special meals with your loved ones!
It’s a great time of year for great food AND healthier options. With MorningStar Farms® products, you have to “Taste It To Believe It.” And believe it you, will. These products are not just for vegetarians – they’re for everyone. Like me! I eat meat, but I can appreciate veggie cuisine. Alternatively, many of my loved ones cannot eat meat, and so they appreciate my attention to detail even more. MorningStar Farms® Chipotle Black Bean Crumbles™ are perfect for a favorite holiday recipe. Me? I love canapés and that’s why I thought they’d be perfect for it. Favorite recipes made healthier and with flavor.
It’s an as-is meal solution. I find my favorites – like MorningStar Farms® Chipotle Black Bean Crumbles™ and MorningStar Farms® Chik’n Strips – at Walmart in the frozen food aisle:
Chipotle Black Bean Crumbles are perfect for my recipe because they’re flavored with a blend of bold southwest spices, adding a punch of flavor to my appetizers. They have 8g of protein per serving – making them true over-achievers.
My recipe is vegetarian and a healthier alternative to meat. I choose it because I like parties without limits, and that means having dishes everyone can eat. These adorable phyllo cups makes me so happy! You can thaw them from the freezer at room temperature, or you can bake them for a few minutes like I did. Then when my Chipotle Black Bean Crumbles are fresh from the skillet, they have a warm vehicle to hold them. This party batch will serve a half dozen or dozen friends:
- 1 package MorningStar Farms® Chipotle Black Bean Crumbles™
- 2 avocados, diced
- 1/2 jalapeno pepper, chopped
- 1 teaspoon olive oil,
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- 12 Phyllo Cups
- 1. Cook the MorningStar Farms® Chipotle Black Bean Crumbles™ according to the bag. I used a skillet
- 2. In a bowl, combine the freshly cooked MorningStar Farms® Chipotle Black Bean Crumbles™, the diced avocado, the jalapeno, the oil, and the salt and pepper
- 3. You have the option to slightly warm the phyllo first
- 4. Scoop the warm mixture into the cups and serve
- 5. Enjoy!
I actually remember the first time I had Morningstar Farms. I was in high school and looking for new veggie options. And I love that all these years later, I can still find new solutions that fit in with my lifestyle. I wasn’t throwing parties with canapés in high school! I am now.
