Ingredients
Ingredients
3-4 sticks celery, cut into 14 x 5cm long pieces
100g reduced-fat cottage cheese
Topping for the tomato and basil bites:
15g sundried tomatoes, finely chopped
1 tbsp chopped fresh basil
pinch white pepper
pinch paprika pepper
Topping for the Parma ham and spring onion bites:
1 slice Parma ham, finely chopped
1 spring onion, finely chopped
pinch white pepper
Method
  1. Divide the cottage cheese between two bowls.
  2. Add sundried tomato, basil and a pinch of white pepper to one bowl, and mix.
  3. Add the spring onion, Parma ham and a pinch of pepper to the other bowl, and mix.
  4. Spoon the mixtures evenly into the hollow of the celery pieces, and sprinkle the sun-dried tomato ones with a pinch of paprika.
Chefs tips
  • Use pieces of sweet pepper or hollowed out cucumber rather than celery.
  • Try experimenting with flavours - you could add curry paste or try different herbs such as coriander or dill.
  • By sprinkling one flavour with paprika you can easily identify which canapés are vegetarian.
  • Freezing instructions: Freeze in portions then defrost in the microwave. Heat until piping-hot, stirring regularly. Eat immediately and discard any leftovers.
