These little bites of quinoa and vegetables will impress everyone at your next gathering! These might look fancy, but they are simple to make too.
I’ll be honest, when I go to a party or social gathering, I could just eat appetizers and be very, very happy. It used to happen all the time when I’d go to weddings, I’d eat all the appetizers and barely have room for dinner. Appetizers are easy to make, super cute and bite sized (which makes them portion controlled if you don’t eat them all in one serving!)
What goes perfectly with adorable little appetizers? Wine of course! These tasty, cheesy stuffed mushrooms pair perfectly with the lively fruit flavors in this VOVETI Prosecco. I drink both white and red wine and it wasn’t until just recently had I started to try different types of Prosecco and sparkling wines. VOVETI is the chic, modern Italian prosecco that embodies affordable luxury and classic style. And let’s be honest, the bubbles make it seem so much more fancy, right?
I wanted to make something simple to be prepare ( I promise these are easy!) and that would be perfect for the holidays or a special occasion. These bite sized babies might look fancy, but they are ready in no time.
