Delicious easy and healthy recipes - starters
When organizing a lunch or dinner with friends or family, we usually plan the menu days in advance so that we can buy everything you need and make the evening perfect. However, when our guests are many we always try to save as much as possible, hence we look for healthy, delicious and inexpensive options for dishes and entrees.

Do you want to know some healthy entrees, easy to make and on a low budget? Here we show you some appetizers to surprise all your guests.
Delicious starters and on a budget
It is best to offer several small snacks with a different main ingredient, be it meat, vegetables or fish. This will allow your guests to choose the ones they like best. Can you imagine serving only meat entrees? It would not be recommended if, for example, you have a vegetarian friend.
One of the most recommended options is the vegetable tempuras, very famous in the Asian world. They are easy to make, quick and, also, very economical since you only need to make the tempura with water and flour to wrap the vegetables and put them in the deep fryer. It is usually a successful starter.
Another option when it comes to vegetable starters is hummus with tofu toasts. It is true that getting tofu a few years ago could seem complicated, but today we find it in all supermarkets, so it is a good option (since it is quite inexpensive). You just have to put hummus on the toasts and, on top, place a piece of tofu. You can marinate it beforehand or simply pass it through the pan. Delicious.
Meat starters are the ones that tend to succeed the most, especially those that we recommend.
The first one we recommend is the classic carpaccio. It is true that many people are reluctant to try carpaccio, but once they try it, they cannot stop. On this occasion, we recommend making carpaccio rolls with dates, arugula and cheese. It is a delicious option. Your guests will be amazed!
Other options can be chicken skewers, teriyaki chicken skewers, meatballs in tomato sauce ..., you have many options and all of them are delicious.
Who doesn't love a good seafood starter? It is the most common since, in addition to being delicious, it is usually easy to prepare and eat. It is true that they can be a bit more expensive than other entrees, but it is worth it.
A good option will always be the seafood cocktail. You can put it on top of some small toasts so that your guests can enjoy it in one bite.
Another idea of seafood starters is to make a bed of puff pastry, place a little spreadable cheese and top with a shrimp. It is an original, fresh, easy to make and delicious aperitif.
Finally, we cannot forget the classic tartar, but this time we recommend making it with salmon with avocado. The mix is explosive and delicious. Your guests will be amazed by your hand in the kitchen.
