one thing i never forget though, is to plan a few recipes in advance (i mean food is sacred, right?). for today’s edition of edible rooms, i am going to share with you a super easy recipe to make a delicious appy that will make you the star of every holiday party you attend…along with your karaoke skills, of course.

prosciutto, fig, and spinach pesto bruschetta.
makes 6 portions

ingredients:

– 6 slices of a nice rustic bread
– extra virgin olive oil
– 6 slices of prosciutto
– basket of fresh figs (dried figs work too)

for the pesto:

– 3 handfuls of spinach
– 1 handful of fresh basil
– 1 clove of garlic (half if you don’t like to get stinky)
– 1/4 cup of walnuts (cheaper than pine nuts and just as tasty)
– 1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese (the real one!)
– 1/4 cup of olive oil

steps:

1. make the pesto: add all the ingredients to a food processor and pulse until they form a chunky paste (not a puree!). add extra oil if needed.

2. toast or grill the bread slices

3. spread some pesto on the toasted bread, then place the prosciutto and try to make pretty ribbons with it. top with figs, a drizzle of olive oil, a sprinkle of fresh cracked pepper, and a few thin slices of parmesan cheese.

done and done. it’s mighty tasty and a total time saver. pair it up with some vino and you’re set for success (including lots of thank you gifts from your guests).

’til next time! Gab from The Artful Desperado.

  1. my husband makes this and it is one of my favorite things! And don’t feel bad Victoria – I save all my shopping for the day before. I guess I like stressing myself out? Seriously have no idea why I do that every year.

  2. I’ve opposite! I’ve got a lot of my Christmas shopping done. It’s partially because of the planner in me, and partially because I just couldn’t afford to buy everyone in my gigantic family presents in the same month (if I want to get anything nice at least). This recipe sounds so yummy! Love a good brushcetta .

  3. This looks absolutely divine. Gorgeous styling, DELICIOUS food, what could be better? Especially loving the addition of figs – feels very appropriate for fall!

  4. Mmmm….this sounds delicious, and easy to make. the room is great too, the combination of light, bright with wood and metal gives it personality. Thanks for sharing!
