Fresh Carrot and Basil Rolls
Diet Info: DF GF F LF Na LS VG V Fa
For large get-together or kids parties, I always love having several small platters of finger food appetizers. These are life savers when people make small groups and are busy chit-chatting. Instead of circulating big platters around like a humble hostess, just serve few small platters to each group, sit and enjoy the party.

Small fresh rolls are my favorite among finger foods. Easy to make and very kid friendly. You can make two kind of sauces to go with it, one for kids and one little spicy for adults.

I often struggled for fresh rolls sticking to platter very quickly. Here is my quick solution for that. Mix 1/8 tsp of olive oil with 1 tsp water and apply it on platter before placing rolls and they will never stick to plate.

Lets get the party started!!
