A Simple & Easy Snack Platter

simple and easy snack platter

A typical in need of snack platter scenario. So picture this, it’s Friday afternoon and you’re finishing up with your work week although let’s be honest it’s more like crashing into the end of the work week.

Just as you slump into the lounge and hit the Netflix button you hear your phone vibrate.

You glance over weary-eyed and read the message. It’s Amy saying Thank God Its Friday lets hang out im bringing a few friends around I will be there in an hour.

It takes a few seconds for your fried brain to process your message then you suddenly realise that you don’t have any food in the house.

You think I could always go with CCs and throw some spring rolls in the oven but this group of friends can be the judgy type.

Now don’t get me wrong you love them but yea you need something a little less kids’ party and a little more wine and dine and you dont have the time or energy for a quick shop.

So we’re in a hurry here let’s get cracking on the easy snack platter that I’ve promised you.

Snack Platter Ingredients

  • Wraps or flatbread (You know those ones you eat for lunch at work every day with some slices of ham, cheese, lettuce and mayo)
  • 2 cloves of garlic (If you don’t have garlic in your pantry im secretly judging you because it goes in everything)
  • Salt (I like Australian sea salt but yea whatever Trevor)
  • Olive Oil
  • Hommus (I know you have hommus because “everyone loves hommus” Sausage Party Quote)
  • Cornichons (You can also use pretty much anything that is pickled. If you don’t have pickled veggies in your pantry then you need to subscribe to our email list. We are doing bulk preserving content soon)
  • Oyster Mushroom Chips (This is an added extra, more of a wish list item)

Cooking and Preparation

  1. Microwave the flatbread/probably three-week-old wraps in the microwave so they don’t stick together.
  2. Remove from the microwave and slice into dorito sized triangles.
  3. Finely chop the garlic and add to a bowl with the olive oil.
  4. Add the salt and flatbread to the garlic and olive oil. Get your hands in there and mix them well.
  5. Toss them in the air fryer for 5 minutes at 180 degrees celsius or oven if you’re old school.
  6. Remove them from the air frier and toss them before returning them to the air fryer for another 5 minutes.
  7. While they are cooking slice your cornichons or fermented vegetables into thing slices and serve on a plate.
  8. Add a dollop of hommus and mushroom chips if available.
  9. Add the toasted flat bread chips to the plate and give them a go.

I absolutely love this quick snack recipe and the flatbread slices still remain fluffy on the inside making for a fantastic texture. I have found that they go amazing with hommus although feel free to swap in a variety of other baking and cooking pastes from the Food Lovers Marketplace or any middle eastern food for that matter.

Well, that wraps up my easy snack platter recipe. If your thinking there is no way that I had these ingredients in my pantry we have pieced together a nifty pantry stocking guide to help you save money on cooking in the long run. We are also looking to cover a variety of fermented food recipes in the near future. With the cost of living on the rise, it’s time to get back into the kitchen and start preserving fresh fruit and vegetables on a budget.
