Monica Fink | Portfolio 1 – Appetizer’s and Snacks

Avocado Salsa Bowls

Avocados are an excellent choice for a whole-food healthy fat. Enjoy this mix of flavors as an appetizer or snack any day. It also looks great as a party dish to share!

Baked Bruschetta Bites

You can never have too many finger foods. These delicious bites are quick and easy but watch out - they go quickly too! I recommend making a double batch.

Protein Energy Bites

This quick snack recipe is packed with a great balance of complex carbohydrates, fiber, protein, and healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Both kid and adult-approved!

Cashew “Cheez”

I have used this recipe as a tasty dip for veggies, chips, crackers and pita. It also makes a great "cheez" topping for Mexican-style casseroles/burritos, soups, and chilli's.

Cannellini Bean Dip

Preparing hummus-style dips is easy and delicious. This recipe is much lower in fat compared to store-bought varieties and the fresh rosemary makes all the difference.

Stuffed Baby Portobellos

The fresh homemade breadcrumbs really make this recipe. These little "bellas" are great as an appetizer, snack or serve with a salad and you have a great meal!


This recipe can easily be doubled, adjusting seasonings according to how many avocados are used. Taste before adding any salt as the soy sauce is fairly salty already.
