Most of the recipes mentioned below take around ten minutes to make, albeit it all depends on your cooking skills. Anyway, making these appetizers is like investing in your health. All of them are jam-packed with nutrients and most are low calorie. Here are ten irresistible appetizers you can eat absolutely guilt-free.

1. Watermelon Fruit Pizza

The hardest thing about this recipe is probably to cut the watermelon to get a perfect pizza base. When you need a super quick and easy appetizer to fight sugar cravings or keep your guests’ stomachs happy while you are making brunch/lunch/dinner, the watermelon fruit pizza is your option.

2. Potato Asparagus Tart

This relatively light appetizer is tasty and diet-friendly when eaten in moderation. Plus, it is no hassle at all. Taking a little step toward a healthier life has never been easier.

3. Broccoli Quesadillas

Bring a nutrient-dense appetizer to the table by making these yummy and healthy broccoli quesadillas. If you do have no broccoli, you can use any vegetable of your choice. I tried zucchini and cabbage. They work great for this recipe too.

4. Baked Artichokes

Well, this recipe is for crazy gals like me who enjoy artichokes whether baked or canned. Why crazy? I do not know about you, but every time I say I love artichokes people tell me, ‘How do you eat ’em?’ In reality, they are incredibly delicious. Give this recipe a try, if you don’t believe me.

5. Eggplant Rolls

Although these eggplant rolls are not absolutely healthy, they make a fantastic treat to enjoy once in a while. Since I am not a big fan of mayonnaise, I use low-fat Greek yogurt. You can opt for whatever your stomach desires, but don’t forget about the calories and trans fat.

6. Curly Fries

Investing in a high-quality spiralizer is a great idea for those who love crispy appetizers and fun salads. If all you have at home is potato, you can still save the situation and treat your guests to perfectly crispy curly fries.

7. Mozzarella Stick Waffles

We all know and many have even tried to make mozzarella sticks, but what about the mozzarella waffles? My friends didn’t know that my waffles’ main ingredient was mozzarella until they ate them.

8. Crunchy Turkish Tahini Baklava Cookies

I’m not Turkish but I love their cuisine and incorporate some recipes in my meal plan as well. These Baklava cookies make wonderful sweet appetizers, albeit it takes some time and effort to make them.

9. Guacamole Onion Rings

If you don’t care about the calories or fats, these guacamole onion rings will make your day. I love the idea of using lime juice in the recipe. Lime juice has powerful weight loss benefits and it helps to improve the taste of the rings.
