Festive Quinoa Cups

The festive season equals fingerfood heaven for me! At every party you’re presented bite-sized morsels of festive goodness – some better than others, but I always find that miniature food is fun.

I already have quite a good fingerfood repertoire, but I love to develop new recipes for my annual Xmas party.

This year, I decided to go with an oriental theme and focus on middle-eastern inspired food. These festive quinoa cups are filled with a herby quinoa salad, specked with pomegranate seeds – little gems that instantly make any dish look very pretty.

The filling is actually vegan, so if you manage to find vegan crispy cups, you can deem them ‘vegan appetizers’. You can enhance them by adding chopped pistachios or crumbled feta (then they’re not vegan anymore) to the quinoa.

Also check out my truffle hummus and merguez pyramid pastries that go with my oriental fingerfood spread.

Thanks to Villeroy & Boch for sponsoring the beautiful Orient-Express La Classica Contura crockery and Bernadotte Champagne glasses for this recipe.
