Cheese is a common ingredient in appetizers — almost everyone loves cheese, plus it compliments so many other ingredients. But cheese, a source of sodium and phosphorus, also shows up on the kidney diet list of foods to limit or avoid.
The DaVita.com recipe collection features five cheesy appetizers that meet kidney-friendly standards. Cream cheese, cottage cheese and brie cheese are lowest in phosphorus, so these are included in cheese ball, dip and chutney recipes. Blue cheese in the cheese dip recipe adds a punch of flavor without too much sodium or phosphorus, because only a small amount is included. Serve these cheesy appetizers with confidence at your next party knowing that your kidney diet goals are met with a blast of flavor for all.
