If you are looking for a fresh appetizer, try these endive stuffed with goat cheese, kumquats, pistachios, and honey drizzle.
The holidays are here and it is time to start thinking about entertaining and fun party food appetizers. Appetizers are a must for both adults and hungry kids.
One of the easiest (and quickest) appetizers to make is stuffed endive leaves. You will love that this goat cheese stuffed endive recipe is ready in under 10 minutes.
I was lucky enough to get three heads of endive and fresh kumquats in our organic farm box today. Have you tried kumquat yet? You can eat these tiny oranges whole, peel and all! Believe it or not, you can even eat the kumquat seeds!
My kids thought that was odd at first, but they quickly caught on.
Kumquats are versatile in so many recipes, both sweet like this Gluten Free Madeleine recipe, and savory, like this Kale and Kumquat Salad. This kumquat appetizer recipe is fun, and the bright orange color makes this cheese stuffed endive look pretty on a buffet.
Your guests will love this healthy endive appetizer recipe. It is stuffed with fresh goat cheese, kumquat, pistachio and honey.
My favorite thing about this appetizer is that it can be made in about 5 minutes so you can focus on more important things, like socializing with your friends.
(I was lucky enough to find some wonderful local wildflower honey which really helped make this appetizer special.)
