5 simple tapas for your socializing tonight
Summer is still in full swing, the high temperatures don’t let up and we bring you an idea how to put together a colorful and healthy table for your friends without much hassle and high temperatures in the kitchen. The preparation will take some time, but you can then enjoy it with your friends without worry.
Although tapas are a traditional Spanish dish, they are loved by all. Simple and delicate snacks that go irresistibly with a glass of champagne, wine or gin and tonic… and we bring them to you with the Chiavalon twist!
Here are 5 easy ideas for light snacks that will suit any taste:
- STUFFED TOMATOES WITH GOAT SKUTA
Cut the top off the tomato and hollow it out, put the meet in a bowl and mix with the skuta pieces, finely chopped garlic, capers and season with salt, pepper and olive oil and then fill the tomato with it. Cover with the top, oil with olive oil and bake in the oven for 20 minutes at 180 degrees.
- ALLA PARMIGIANA EGGPLANTS IN TOMATO SALSA
Cut the eggplants lengthwise into thin strips and soften in a pan in olive oil for a few minutes. Then place the mozzarella on top, add a little salt and steam and roll. Na dno posude stavite malo šalše, posložite rolice i polijte ih šalšom, maslinovim uljem i naribajte malo parmezana preko. Put some salsa on the bottom of the pan, arrange the rolls and rub the salsa, olive oil and some parmesan on top. Put in the oven and bake at 180 °C for about 30 minutes.
PS looks especially nice when placed in small ceramic pots and portioned.
- TRIO BRUSCHETTA:
Base: arrange slices of bread on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for a bit until a crust is formed. Then rub with garlic and drizzle with olive oil and then we put together a story.
SALSA, ONIONS AND ANCHOVY
Put a spoonful of salsa, some onion jam and a few pieces of grated anchovies and capers on the seasoned bread and drizzle again with olive oil and put in the oven for a few more minutes.
The onion jam is made by cutting the purple onion into half moons, salting it and lightly frying it in olive oil while stirring. When the liquid has evaporated, add brown sugar and a little honey, red wine and balsamic and cook until it thickens or evaporates.
CHEESE AND FRUIT
Put cottage cheese or mozzarella on the seasoned bread, drizzle with thick balsamic vinegar and top with either peaches lightly roasted in olive oil in a pan or roasted pineapple with pepper or serve with fresh berries – whichever you prefer. You can always season it to your liking, we just like to pour olive oil on top.
OLIVES, BACON AND MINT
Put black olives, thyme, basil, some salt and pepper in a blender and mix everything. Fry the thinly sliced bacon on the side of the pan until it is crispy like chips and then chop. Spread the pate on the bruschetta, sprinkle with bacon and mint leaves… and drizzle a little olive oil on top.
- ZUCCHINI CARPACCIO WITH PARMESAN LEAVES
Cut the zucchini in very thin slices, salt them and let them rest for a while on a paper support or cloth to drain the water. Then arrange on a plate, sprinkle with Parmesan leaves, add capers, drizzle with lemon and olive oil.
- SWEET AND SALTY PEANUT SURPRISE
Mix peanut butter, some chopped peanuts with egg cream, that you steamed with some sugar and then add whipped cream (sweet cream). Mix everything and put in the freezer for a few hours, stirring every hour. You will get peanut ice cream, which you sprinkle lightly with salt leaves and olive oil when serving.
We hope to have inspired you to prepare quick snacks that will please everyone. They are healthy, the preparation is short and ideal for warm summer evenings on the terrace.
Enjoy the flavors and have fun.
