All of my classmates in one of my graduate classes found out that cooking is my passion, so naturally, I was nominated to bring snacks to class. Normally, my specialties are main dishes, so I'm a little stumped on a snack to bring. It has to be cold/room temp because I work before I go to class, so I'll have to make it the night before and can only refrigerate it while at work.
Also, I am a vegetarian, so I don't want to cook any meat (cheese is fine though), and I am a grad student cooking for 20 other people, so it has to be somewhat inexpensive (yes, I would love to make goat cheese and walnut stuffed figs and marinated bocconcini with tomatoes skewers, but I can't afford all that right now).
So, does anyone have any make ahead, vegetarian, inexpensive crowd pleasing appetizers?
(As I put it all together, it sounds like a tall order from my fellow Chow Hounders, but I have faith in you).
Thank you for the help!!
