Crudités make a really fantastic starter! They are, for those who do not know, batons of raw vegetables, which you dip in something.
They are extremely moreish, healthy, and depending on the dip, low calorie. Raw vegetables are ‘difficult’ to digest, so they give you a feeling of fullness.
Good vegetables include:
Celery – string it first
Red, green or yellow peppers
Chillies – of course, but make sure they are mild
Cucumber – de-seeded
Good dips include:
Mayonnaise – preferably homemade
Coriander or tomato Hummus – thin the consistency with yogurt so you can dip the vegetables easily, but the coating sticks.
