Make sure these tasty canapés are in your armoury over the festive season. Easily prepared in advance they can be whipped out to impress last minute guests. There are so many great drinks occasions in December that it’s good to have a few simple finger-food recipes at hand. These vegetarian bites are always a crowd pleaser and go especially well with a glass of bubbly. I like to prepare the filo bites in advance so that I only have to reheat them once my guests arrive. Any leftovers can easily be frozen, which really comes in handy when unexpected guests arrive.
The sweet squash is tangily countered by the blue cheese and the nuts bring gorgeous crunch, though the gentler rubble of toasted pine nuts can be happily substituted.
