Charred Chili Honey Broccoli, Ricotta Crostini

Whether you're hosting for the holidays or you have the delight of being a guest, we bet there's some cooking to be done in your future. This holiday season, FLIK is celebrating with veggie-based hors d'oeuvres. Appetizers are often loaded with dairy and meat, which can be heavy on calories, saturated fat, and sodium. Our recipe for Charred Chili Honey Broccoli, Ricotta Crostini slashes all three of those without sacrificing presentation or flavor! The only downside is that these are so good, it will be hard to stop yourself after only one serving. 

For more ways to keep your holidays healthier, we've got tips from the FLIK Registered Dietitians.
