Tapas Dinner for a Crowd
Hello May, I’ve been waiting for you for so long. It is a relieve to see the garden awakening. I have a very small vegetable garden, and it is so ready to be planted with fresh veggies. From zucchini to tomatoes I have a little bit of everything. Radishes are always among the first vegetables I plant, and they occupy a slightly larger piece of my tiny garden. I’m a huge fan of the sharp, fresh, crispy taste. I practically eat it with anything, from butter toast to salad, even pickled.
We had some friends coming over not long ago, and I knew that I don’t want to serve roast meat or anything too big. I’ve rather prepared a tapas dinner, which is always a good idea when you’re serving a small crowd. This way everybody can find something he/she likes, or just combine the meals as he /she wishes. I knew I want to make two of my very favorite snack food for sure. On is the spicy pickled radishes and the other is hot chorizo-manchego tapas among many others. Instead of bread, I like to serve the dishes with small pastry cups.
Cooking for a small crowd takes a lot of time, so I took out my dicer attachment to save a bit of time. I do not use this kitchen appliance very often, but it comes in handy when I make pickles or I want to cut the ingredients into neat cubes, just like now. You just have to feed everything in the machine and they come out as nice, little, bite-size cubes, plus it also saves you a lot of space in the pickle jars this way. You just have to make sure, that all ingredients are fresh and not too soft. I bought a little bit softer chorizo, which would have been a problem with the dicer, but I put it in the freezer for 10-15 Minutes and got hard enough.
If you like radishes, you don’t want to miss out on this recipe. It is fresh, spicy and also a perfect alternative to pickled cucumbers. And the chorizo-machego tapas is a phenomenal meal with just a few ingredients. A good example that good food doesn’t need to be complicated. Simple food tastes the best.
