Help!  I'm going to a Christmas party this weekend.  The host is doing most of the cooking, but she has asked that we all bring some fingerfoods to share, to make her job easier.  Easy enough, right?  But I've never had to make appetizers before, so I don't know what to bring!  Factor in wheat, dairy, egg, and chocolate allergies in the invitees, and all of a sudden you've got trouble.  I know I'll probably not be able to make something that everyone can eat, but I'd like to accomodate at least most of us.  Can anyone suggest any tasty morsels I could try?

You can try edamame (green soybeans in pods -- you can buy them frozen at most Asian groceries).  Here's a Food Network recipe...I haven't actually tried it, but it sounds like it would be good.  You could substitute other spices, or just serve them sprinkled with kosher salt.

You could make hummus or black bean dip (served with sliced veggies or corn chips) or sushi if you're ambitious.

Or vegan caramel dip (haven't tried this particular recipe) with sliced apples.

Have fun cooking!

Looks like chicken isn't on the bad list - cook some chicken breast marinated in soy sauce/brown sugar, cube it, and stick on skewers with some veggies. A soy sauce/peanut butter/chile sauce would work with it. Just served it up to 200 a couple weeks ago and they gobbled it down.

Stuffed mushrooms always go over well. You can stuff with mashed sweet potatoes and veggies, a few bread crumbs, sausage, whatever! Use basil and oregano, salt and pepper. Brush or spray oil over all, and bake at 375 for 8-12 minutes, depending on the size of the mushroom.
