Easy and tasteful – SheKnows

Giada De Laurentiis shared her famous grandmother's risotto recipe – SheKnows

Who says appetizers are just for going out? Appetizers are our best friends; they’re always light and delicious (and super easy to make!) Giada De Laurentiis’ new appetizer is not only delicious and simple, but it also uses such an interesting secret ingredient.

On September 23, De Laurentiis uploaded a photo of the delectable appetizer with the caption: “These crostini are simple, elegant and pack a lot of luscious truffle flavor into every bite. The secret is truffle honey – it has the perfect balance of sweet and savory – and it fits. exceptionally good with Parmigiano Reggiano, which is mixed into every bite of fluffy ricotta. Get the #recipe in the profile link!”

This beginner-friendly and flavorful starter takes just 10 minutes to prep and 10 minutes to cook up to a dozen of these crostinis. Now you need quite a few ingredients for the crostini, ricotta and topping. Now for the crostini you only need a few ingredients, but for the blended ricotta you will need extra virgin olive oil, ricotta and salt, just to name a few. Now you only need a few ingredients for the topping, including the secret ingredient: truffle honey.

If you can’t find truffle honey locally, there are some tasty options on Amazon. One of the most popular options is the TruffleHunter Real White Spring Truffle (Tuber Borchii) Acacia Honey, a kosher option for just $21.
