In the Purim issue of Joy of Kosher with Jamie Geller, Jamie shares 5 great appetizers that also work for a weekday dinner.  Here are 5 more.

Slow Roasted Cherry Tomato Bruschetta is a perfect pass around, but spread on bread with some fresh mozzarella and you got yourself a perfect sandwich dinner.

Anything on a stick makes a great appetizer, but these Five Spice Appetizer Meatballs are also perfect on top of a side of rice for  an easy weeknight dinner, make extra, they freeze well too.

Creamy Carrot Soup made with coconut milk can be served in shot glasses, hot or cold, for a fun party treat or can be served with some crusty bread for a quick healthy dinner.

Everybody loves mini Pigs in a Blanket at a party, but they make dinner time a happy time too.  You can serve these as is or cut them into pieces and serve with toothpicks (the best is the mustard is already on them).

Fried food is always appreciated at a party. These Sushi Tempura Rolls fit the bill and aren’t much of a splurge.  They can be enjoyed any night paired with a nice hot miso soup or a salad with miso dressing.
