Tips

For an even healthier alternative, why not try using either Tilda’s Butternut Squash or Roasted Red Pepper and Courgette varieties, both containing wholesome brown Basmati, and switch to a low fat Greek yogurt

Use Baby Gem lettuce leaves instead of Cos leaves to create the perfect bite sizes canapés for a party
