Zucchini rolls-my quick fix for starters

DSC_6305I don’t know about you, but I like having people over for diner. It creates an opportunity to bond, maybe exchange few gossips and feed my friends something tasty. And it is a great chance to clean the appartment too! However I know from experience that the “what should I serve as a starter?” question can be difficult. So today I want to present you my idea for a quick fix, for when you need an inspiration.

DSC_6301You need:

a pack of feta cheese (about 300g)

a pack of cream cheese (about 300g)

3 large zucchinis

fresh parsley

fresh chives

3-4 tbsp horseradsich

1 paprika

4 tomatoes

1 onion

2 garlic cloves

salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Wash the paprika, cut out the core and cut in 4. Peel the onion and cut in 4, and the tomatoes in halves. Place all the vegetables on a baking tray, along with garlic, peeled and cut into big pieces. Sprinkle with oil and put it in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.

Put the feta and cream cheese into a bowl and stir until it forms a homogeneous mass. Divide it into two and put aside.

Wash the zucchinis and cut it lenghtwise into thin slices.

Take one of the cheese mixture and mix with the horseradish. Add a handful of chopped chives and taste with salt.

Peel the paprika and tomatoes and place in a bowl, along with the garlic cloves and onion, and purre it, then add the mass to the remaining cheese and stir well.

Fry the zucchini slices on both sides until tender, then place them on the plate and let them cool a little.

Spread the slices, salt and pepper to taste, and smear the cheese masses. Then roll the zucchinis itnto small rolls, garnish with chopped parsley and sprinkle with oil.
