These vegetable savories are delicious served cold as an appetizer with pre-dinner drinks and make a nice, healthy change from cheese and crackers. The fresh snow peas need to be crisp so don't overcook them. Recipe makes 24.
24 snow peas
4 ounces (125 g) cream cheese
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
2 teaspoons fresh chives, chopped
Pinch of ground cayenne pepper
1 small jar red caviar
1. Cook snow peas in boiling water for 20 seconds. Drain and rise under cold water. Split along curved side, leaving straight side intact.
2. Process remaining ingredients, except caviar, in a food processor. Using a piping bag, pipe mixture into snow peas.
3. Refrigerate until firm. Garnish with red caviar.
