#1. What is your favorite appetizer?
I love spinach and artichoke dip.
#2. Do you eat enough appetizers that you get full and can’t eat your meal?
No, we always get one to share with the table
#3. Do you usually make frozen or fresh appetizers?
I make them. I love the convenience of the premade or frozen, but they are so high in sodium and fat that I prefer to make my own.
#4. Share a recipe or instructions for an appetizer.
Yet again, from my wholefoods recipe stash...
Dried Fig, Brie and Rosemary Bites
Serves 4 to 6
8-12 large plump dried figs
2-3 ounces Brie, cut into small pieces
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves
sea salt, to taste
ground pepper, to taste
If the figs are very dry, plump them in boiling water for 5 to 10 minutes. Drain and cool them. Trim the stems and make a slit in the side of each fig. Push a piece of Brie into each fig. Place in a bowl and toss gently with olive oil, rosemary, salt and pepper. Serve at room temperature or heat in a 350°F oven until warm and cheese melts, about 8 minutes.
