Rice cakes & extra virgin olive oil | Light delights

Rice cakes are a perfect ingredient for delicious appetizers or light snacks.  At Oro Don Vincenzo we use and combine them with our extra virgin olive oil and other tasty and healthy ingredients to make what we call “Light Delights”. In this post we are introducing three recipes that are extremely easy to prepare and offer an extraordinary fresh flavour that will surely please your palate. You can also use your creativity and try as many colors as possible with your favourite vegetables and ingredients.

 

We think that rice cakes appetizers can be considered the modern brother of the more traditional bruschetta. Using rice cakes for appetizers can have many advantages:

  1. They are extremely easy to prepare and you can better concentrate on the preparation of the main course;
  2. They are very light yet tasty, leaving the right dose of appetite for the rest of your meal;
  3. They can be a fantastic way to impress as you can seriously express your art and creativity;
  4. They go very well together with prosecco and champagne;
  5. Your kitchen won’t be a mess after, as the preparation requires no cooking;
  6. Your guests don’t need to sit or struggle with forks and knife to eat them;
  7. It significantly reduces the calories intake vs the use of normal bread.

 

Ah we forgot, plain rice cakes with only extra virgin olive oil and some black pepper can also be considered as a very good appetizer, provided that you are using a premium quality extra virgin like Oro Don Vincenzo. In fact the aroma and flavour of the oil are strongly highlighted when combined with the rice cake.
