These have always been a hit served among other foods or served as an entrée. They are easy to make, take little time, and you can vary the filling.

I wanted this lot to be vegetarian however I have also made them in a larger quantity using smoked chicken.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 0 minutes
Makes: 5 boats

1 stick celery
About 4 -5 tbsp cream cheese
3 tbsp parsley
½ tsp lemon zest
¼ red onion or shallot, chopped finely
Chili flakes (optional)
Few grapes, chopped (optional)

Add some salt and pepper, chili flakes and grapes, if using.
Gently mix (if the cream cheese is too hard, put it in the microwave for about 15 seconds).
