Double Blue Tortilla Crostini

This recipe from ” Nigella Christmas” by Nigella Lawson will make about 60 small tortilla chip crostini. If you like the spead could be served as a dip with people dipping in the tortilla chips or alternatively some crudites. You can make the cheese mixture up to six hours ahead, cover with clingfilm and refrigerate. Remove from the fridge about 20 minutes before using to let it soften. Dollop over the tortilla chips just before serving.

Prawn Croquettes (8)

Another favourite from Bengal which I found in Asma Khan’s ” Ammu”. With British and Portuguese influences recipes like this would have originated as railway meals for the colonial elite, but later spread to the general public.

Beet Lindstrom (4)

A vegetarian version of the Swedish classic Beef Lindstrom from ” The Little Swedish Kitchen” by Rachel Khoo. The patties can be served with salad leaves, or some sliced avocado and crumbled feta. They also make very good vegetarian burgers served in a bun with some crispy Cos lettuce.

Wallenbergare Burger (4)

A rich and creamy burger from ” The Little Swedish Kitchen” by Rachel Khoo. The burgers can be served in a brioche bun or , more traditionally, served with buttery mash, peas and lingonberry jam.
