We’ve all been there, sat, vegging out in front of the TV when an unexpected guest knocks at the door. It’s bound to happen at least once this Christmas, so we’ve selected some key ingredients to add to your shopping list to ensure that you can knock up minimal fuss, delicious food in seconds.

Tortilla


Tortillas don’t only mean delicious wraps, tacos and fajitas, but also crispy chips, ready in a flash. Katy Beskow’s recipe gets them just right, seasoned with chilli and salt.

Avocado


Those tortilla chips are going to need a dip! If you add an avocado to your Christmas shop, Izy Hossack’s Chunky guacamole could be yours after a mere few minutes chopping and mashing.

Prawns


Prawns are a great ingredient when you need food and fast. Pair them with the aforementioned guacamole on pumpernickel bread or go meaty by serving them with chorizo on toasted baguette.

Cucumber


Not an obvious choice, until you’ve tried Dale Pinnock’s Cucumber canapés – bursting with virtue and assembled in minutes!

Popping corn


Popcorn is both incredibly on trend and incredibly easy to make. Serve Steff Knowles-Dellner’s Swedish themed snack by adding lemon zest and dried dill once the corn is popped.

Smoked salmon


If there’s ever a time for smoked salmon, it’s Christmas. Simplicity is key, which is why we love Trine Hahnemann’s Salmon and horseradish snitters. Or if your guests call in the morning, try Smoked salmon breakfast cups from Posh Toast.

Kale


2017 has most definitely been Kale’s year. Forget salads, smoothies and soups, when you need snacks and fast, try baked kale crisps. This Detox Kitchen Bible recipe also adds in cashews and seasons with paprika.
