Birthday Side Dishes/Appetizers that SAD eaters will LOVE

It’s my birthday quite soon and I’m having an all-raw celebration, but…there’s one or two people that will be there that are definitely more the SAD type eaters. I need a good appetizer, or side dish that is really really TASTY that all my guests will LOVE! And it needs to be made with cheaper ingredients because there will be a lot of people there and there won’t be a lot of extra money for the meal. (Cuz we’re going all out for the dessert!) I really need your ideas, and soon…because we’re doing the shopping tomorrow and I need the list today. Thanks heaps! Oh, and any great cheesecake ideas would be welcome, preferably chocolate!


  • I recommend some great dip for example zucchini hummus, tahini or guacamole with veggie sripes ( carrots, celery, cucumber).

  • Would you like my cookies and cream ice cream cake recipe? I was going to wait until I got my camera but I could post on here personlly to you if you want :) let me know

  • Stuffed mushrooms are always a hit. Once I brought homemade raw salsa and guac with dehydrated corn tortilla chips to a party. Everyone loved them and didn’t even know they were raw at first. You could also do cashew nacho cheese for dipping too.

  • you can’t go wrong with cheesy crackers and other types of things like that. Mt doritos cheesy crackers have been liked by many different sad eaters.

    RawClaire~ whether I use it or not (I was thinking more of a cheesecake) you need to share that ice-cream cake recipe. It sounds DIVINE!!! Oh, and your cheesy crackers…I’m interested. Can you post that recipe too?

    Those are good ideas. I’m having a big mix and match salad for the main meal and I want to keep away from dips and veggies because my guests will already be loaded with them. :0) BUT keep them coming! You guys are the best!


  • Another good appie I just thought of would be slice zucchini or eggplant lengthwise into long strips and put a creamy nut cheese or pate type filling on top then roll it up and stick a fancy toothpick in it. Yum.

  • Sky Princess- I guess the ice cream cake takes a while to make, but I’ll post it as soon as my camera comes! I want the whole thing to be a surprise. Just look at my profile and you’ll see something called Doritos Cheese Crackers. Hope you like it!

    Cheflandria’s Mango cheesecake… I’ve made 3 of them in the past month and a half already! And I’m making 2 more in the next week and a half. I haven’t made another cheesecake, but I have made plenty desserts… this mango cheesecake is at the top of our list for cakes/pies.

    As for appetizers… I don’t know what to suggest. Just your favorite dish, but mini versions of it… to serve as hors’ dourves.

  • Kids might like fruits instead of all the veggies. Maybe a sweet whipped cream type thing to dip it in. Or some sweet cookies. You can’t have a party without happy sweet snacks.

    Those are all so good. I’m really just having family and extended family, there will be no kids except for all of us KIDS AT HEART, which means I am planning on making SWEETS. I agree with you Chris. :0)

    RawClaire, can’t wait till you get your camera. Renoir, ummm, I think that is a good idea.
