Friday nibbles!

Stuck at home and want to jazz up your Friday evening? Why not kick-off the weekend with ‘Friday nibbles’. Grab a stall, share a drink (we've got some fab non alcoholic combo ideas coming up for you next week!), and pop some nibbles in to bowls tapas stylee. It’s a great way to introduce kids to knew food in a relaxed way, and for you all to have some catch up time to start the weekend.

Top tips:

Ensure you have a good balance of healthy as well as treat based stuff in your nibbles - it's not a birthday buffet!

You don't have to make everything from scratch, simply pop together some different flavours and fresh ingredients, sit back and enjoy.

Friday nibbles ideas:

  • Bread sticks

  • Homemade hummus (see our simple hummus recipe here)

  • Yoghurt dip - simply mix greek yoghurt with a large spoonful of mint jelly.

  • Chopped cherry tomatoes with pitted green olives (by in a jar in brine, they're soooo much cheaper and kids tend to prefer them)

  • Homemade popcorn with a little butter and some cinnamon powder and icing sugar

  • Homemade tortillas (just cut up a wrap and pop in the oven for 6 minutes at 180c)

  • Boiled quails eggs (sounds very 'heard in Waitrose' but they're a great snack and the kids enjoy helping to peel them!)

  • Chopped up mango with fresh lime juice squeezed on
