As a vegetarian, I've often found myself in the situation where I'm ravenously hungry at a drinks reception, but all the canapés coming past involve smoked salmon or prosciutto, or other meaty treats. A very first-world problem, I know, but there you go!
So, as party season approaches, I thought a quick roundup of ideas for vegetarian party nibbles & canapés would be a useful resource. You might also be interested in my equivalent vegan roundup: 63 Vegan Canapés & Party Food Recipes.
