Three Simple Appetizers with Extra Virgin Olive Oil

It’s holidays season! With all the stress related to preparing meals around the holidays, you shouldn’t neglect your friends and family. Stumped on what to serve your guests? Here are three delicious appetizers with Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain that are quick and easy to prepare, so you can spend less time in the kitchen and more time celebrating!

Toast topped with creamy goat cheese and minced herbs

Who can resist crunchy toast topped with goat cheese? Mix 1 package of goat cheese (1 roll) with 2-3 tablespoons of cream cheese and a drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain and, voilà – an irresistible cheese ready to spread! Top with fresh herbs and another splash of Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain. Serve over toast with a pinch of salt!

Hummus with Cornicabra extra virgin olive oil

Our hummus will give your party the exotic touch it needs. It’s tasty, healthy, and will surprise your guests! Here’s how to make it:

  • Crush 14 ounces of cooked chick peas.
  • Mix with 2 tablespoons of tahini and the juice of 1 lemon.
  • Put the mix in a deep dish or bowl.
  • Mix everything with a spoon until it has a uniform texture.
  • Mince a bit of cilantro and sprinkle it on top of the hummus with the paprika and Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain.

For this recipe, we recommend the Cornicabra variety of olive oil, because of its fruity notes and velvety texture. But if you don’t have this type in your kitchen, don’t worry, you can choose from over 200 varieties to find the one you like best!
