Today, when I was at work I got hungry and I started thinking about what will I cook when I get back home. I thought about lemon chicken, chinese vegetables with rice, but finally I decided to change direction into something more light and what will make that very cold day a little wormer. I thought of tapas. When you think tapas you think about the places where the weather is warm and sunny, where people have siestas, enjoy food and dolce far niente. I decided to move for a while to such a place just by making a very simple and very delicious and very simple appetizer which is Courgette with sun dried tomatoes and natural cream cheese, I’m sure you will love it!
How you do it?
Ingredients (for 2 people):
10 sun-dried tomatoes
natual cream cheese
freshly ground black pepper and salt
Cut courgette into thin slices, salt each slice a little and let the water go out.
Fry courgette with a very little amout of olive oil, while frying put some fresh pepper on one side on it. Fry until it gets a little tan ;).
When you finish frying, dry them with paper towels so that they aren’t too fat.
Put the slices next to each other and spread them with cream cheese. Put sun-dried tomatoes and wrap them, use a toothpick not to let them unwrap.
One more thing, when it comes to sun-dried tomatoes. Today when I went to the shop, I was looking for sun-dried tomatoes with olive oil but I found only those with vegetable oil. What I did was, I bought regular sun-dried tomatoes in a bag, without any oil, I put them to the bowl and poured some olive oil on them. I salted and peppered them and added some basil and squeezed one clove of garlic.
