Delicacies in mignon format for these goat cheese finger foods topped with pistachio grains to be taken out in one bite. And the kicker is that they don’t even require cooking, you can easily make them in no time.
Serves: 4 to 5 | Preparation time: 10 mins | Store in the fridge : 30 mins
- Fresh soft goat’s cheese: 150 g
- Pistachio nuts: 100 g
- Parmesan, grated: 30 g
- Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO): 1 tsp
- Black ground pepper: to taste
Coarsely chop the pistachio nuts and set them aside in a large shallow plate.
Tip: You can chop the pistachio nuts by using a knife or by quickly blending them in a food processor; just mind not to grind them too finely, as you need some coarse pistachio crumbs and not a pistachio powder.
Mix together the fresh cheese and the grated Parmesan in a bowl along with black pepper, a tsp of olive oil and 2 tsp of chopped pistachio nuts. Stir thoroughly to distribute the ingredients evenly.
Shape the cheese mixture into small balls, with a diameter of about 1 cm. Coat each cheese-ball with the pistachio nuts by rolling it on the pistachio crumbs in the shallow plate.
Place the cheese-pistachio balls on a serving tray and let them cool down in the fridge for half an hour.
Take them out of the fridge 10 minutes before serving them to your guests.
