When it comes to planning a party menu, you can do better than offering carrot sticks and hummus. Anyone can add that to a spread – and everyone does. (Boring much? Maybe.) It’s time to choose an appetizer that’s healthy, fun and a step above plain ol’ veggies and dip. Enter Vegetable Collagen Mini Tarts. These tartlets are loaded with seasonal veggies, cheddar and ricotta cheeses – plus body-boosting collagen – to make them good for you and so tasty, too! This recipe serves 12, so it’s perfect for a dinner party or small gathering; double or triple the recipe for larger groups.
