SCSG Party food special!



Hi Folks,

It’s been a crazy few days here at chez she cooks, she gardens as we’ve put together a mountain of party food for Paul’s sisters engagement party. Over the next few days I will bring you the recipes and photos of plates we created and collate them here, be sure to check back regularly!

All recipes are 100% vego and delicious. Enjoy!



Recipe #1 – Hommus, Erin Style

It wouldn’t be a party without Hommus, so even though this recipe has been up for a while it’s one of the staples. To make this recipe for a crowd simply double the amount of chickpeas, tahini and nuts, then adjust seasonings to taste. Gluten-free & Vegan.

Beetroot dip for a crowd

recipe #2 – Beet dip for a crowd

A new recipe but those who know me well will have tried this at least once. There is enough here to feed a small army but the recipe is easily broken into four for a more manageable amount. Gluten-free & Vego.

Risotto Balls by she cooks, she gardens

recipe #3 – Risotto Balls with bocconcini & basil

This recipe is a labour of love and not for the faint hearted. Crunchy, creamy, oozy and delicious balls of cheesy risotto coated in a gorgeous golden crumb. Guaranteed to make you the king or queen of finger food. Vego.

Haloumi & Caramelised Fig Skewers by she cooks, she gardens

RECIPE #4 – Haloumi & Caramelised Fig Skewers

These babies are quick, easy and declicious. I mean, who doesn’t love fried cheese? Gluten-free & Vego.

Recipe #5 – Marinated Tofu & Capsicum Skewers with Peanut Sauce

A lovely alternative to the chicken shaslick that even your meat eating friends will enjoy. Gluten-free & Vegan.

Recipe #6 – Cake pops

Cute and cakey, these little beauties will be a sure-fire hit at any party. Just make sure you’ve got a bit of time up your sleeve as even though they are easy, they are also a little time-consuming. Vego.

Thanks so much for all your comments, questions and feedback. We will return to normal programming shortly.

    I have just learnt about your blog Erin, and have enjoyed my last hour browsing through it. I have been looking for a recipe for rice balls, so now I will be able to give them a try! I can see that I should get a deep fryer and I think that using it outside is a sensible idea.
    I am looking forward to more recipes from the engagement party.

      Hi Sue, thank you so much for stopping by, it’s great to hear from you. Please let me know how you go with the recipes, I love to hear how people have gone and where I can improve on things. The deep fryer has definitely been a great investment! Take care, Erin.xx
