Our Top 5 Healthy Holiday Appetizers

The holidays are right around the corner and you’re going to need some healthy plant-based appetizers to bring along to any social events you may be attending. Dillon and I have put out several recipe videos that have given some great ideas for appetizers and finger foods you can bring to social gatherings that’ll show everyone just how delicious your healthy lifestyle can be.


Today we wanted to share with you our top 5 APPETIZER recipes from our channel. You can’t go to a holiday gathering empty-handed! We’re making sure that you attend your next event FULL-handed with healthy snacks for everyone to try (or just to make sure you can enjoy the party without worrying about straying from your healthy plan of eating). We even threw in a couple of bonus recipes for you. Keep scrolling to see what we consider our 5 favorite healthy appetizers.


#1 - Deviled Potatoes

Deviled Potatoes are healthy vegan knock-offs of classic Deviled Eggs; the only difference is that they won’t raise your cholesterol, harm your heart, or lead to diabetes like the eggs will! They’re so good from the potato to the chickpea filling. The best part? You get to use a melon baller to scoop out the boat for the filling! Dillon is obsessed with using his melon baller… for everything except actually balling melons! Another great thing is that they can be served chilled; just bring them to the party, pop them on the table, and you’re good to go.

#2 - Jalapeño Poppers

Our famous healthy jalapeño poppers are filled with spiced sweet potatoes and will blow your mind. The sweetness of the potatoes with the light heat from the jalapeños is a match made in heaven. They keep pretty well in the fridge for reheating but let’s be honest, they won’t last that long. We’ve never actually gotten these out the door because we always eat them up so quickly. If we were actually tasked with bringing these to a party we would need to make at least a 4X batch. Every party needs things stuffed into things, am I right?!

#3 - Spinach Artichoke Dip

This dip is another great recipe for stuffing things. In the video, we stuffed mini bell peppers, celery sticks, cucumber wheels, and even some fancy presentation spoons. We love the speed and simplicity of this recipe, which comes from using frozen spinach and artichoke hearts. We found frozen artichoke hearts at Trader Joes that don’t have any salt or oil in them! If you can’t find those, you can always use canned artichoke hearts that you rinse and drain. You could even bake this in a Corningware dish with some sprouted grain bread crumbs sprinkled on top and serve it like the hot artichoke dips you see in restaurants. It’s so versatile!

#4 - Meatloaf Bites

These could be a main dish or an appetizer depending on how you feel. We bake them in silicone muffin tins and like to take them out of the oven and top them with some Well Your World Tomato Ketchup or BBQ Sauce. Then, we put them back in to let the sauce caramelize a bit for that classic meatloaf-like appeal. It really takes them to the next level! Most plant-based “meat loaf” recipes tend to dry out but these stay really moist.

#5 - Jingle Balls

Jingle Balls are essentially healthy bread-free Thanksgiving stuffing in popable ball form. They’ve got kale, celery, mushrooms and lentils (among other things) inside them. They go perfectly on the traditional Thanksgiving or Christmas plate. Just pour some Well Your World Mushroom Gravy on top alongside your mashed potatoes and you’ve got a delicious and healthy holiday appetizer or side dish. Jingle Balls can be enjoyed all year long! For Easter, you could even call them “Bunny Balls” haha!

Bonus Recipe #1 - Walnut Pâté

Dillons’ famous Walnut Pâté was a real hit when he first shared it and he thinks it’s one of the best recipes on the channel. Made with sauteéd mushrooms, toasty walnuts, and fresh rosemary, this is such a savory and satisfying dip that goes well on everything. You can eat the whole thing in one sitting binge-style, so be careful. Make sure you eat it in a room with other people watching so you don’t go crazy like some people (eh hem… Dillon)! Even if you did eat the whole recipe, you’d still be fine because like all our other recipes it’s super-healthy and compliant with your healthy diet.

Bonus Recipe #2 - Cheeze Ball

What holiday party would be complete without a Cheeze Ball? We make it with tofu and chickpeas. We sprinkle on WYW Everything Bagel Seasoning. It’s got that crunch, that savory-smokiness, and that creamy texture you expect in a traditional cheeseball, only 1000% healthier!
