Please give me suggestions of a good finger food to take to a Christmas party......I wanna eat some so it has to be vegetarian and low carb.

Any ideas?

How about various veggies with hummus? You could even take pita chips for other people as well.

Almond stuffed dates? Actually, I bet those aren't low carb.

I also love gherkins rolled in proscuitto but those aren't vegetarian!

Heh :) toughie.

Can you do eggs? Deviled eggs would be a good choice.
celery stuffed with laughing cow wedges
fruit platter with yogurt

NUTS! A nut platter would be good!
various cheeses and pickles

One of my favorite things in the world (besides hummus) are roasted chickpeas. This is a really good recipe:

Only problem is I consider chickpeas finger food, not sure if others do as well :)

You could also do grilled veggie kabobs with little skewers.

Oh and I just had an idea but looks like someone beat me to it! Do you eat quinoa? You could make quinoa sushi.

Here is one recipe I found for it:

How about Caprese bites: A small piece of fresh mozzarella, a cherry tomato, and a basil leaf all speared on a toothpick. They look pretty on a platter and taste great.

So easy! Oh yeah, and they are Christmas colors!

Spinach dip (the standard - drained and squeezed frozen spinach, Knorr soup mix, sour cream, mayo, waterchestnuts, green onions), but in a bowl instead of a bread bowl (I use light sour cream and Hellman's canola mayo - which is half the calories of regular). I double the spinach (it's more a spread than a dip consistency).

Awesome with veggie dippers - slices of bell pepper, seedless cucumber, baby carrots, celery, baby bok choy (seperate the leaves), snow or snap pea pods, broccoli, cauliflower.

Baba ganoush--it's like hummus but with roasted eggplant instead of chickpees--you can use veggies to dip instead of pita bread.

I'm a low carber and while I'm not a vegetarian, I do like veggies. I may have to make this dip/spread for Turkey Day. Thanks for the recipe. :carrot:
