Dates with peanut butter is a combo which i love and have eaten many times. And it is extra luxurious if you add some melted chocolate on top!
However a few days ago i saw an account i follow on Instagram, GKstories, post about savoury dates and i knew i had to try. It wasn’t something i had ever thought about doing but now afterwards i wonder why because it was actually really good!
Stuffed dates is incredibly filling and gives you a sweet and salty combo (if you use salted peanut butter) which works wonderful and satisfies both cravings. Usually fruits and nuts is a great go to when i want something sweet and salty and don’t want/crave chocolate or salty snacks.
I decided to give savoury stuffed dates a go and used Violife feta cheese, vegan bacon, sundried tomatoes and some basil and parsley! And the result was TASTY but also filling.
After two i felt very much satisfied.
This is a snack/appetizer you could prepare when having guests over! Give it a try and let me know what you think.
Apparently also stuffing dates with greek cheese/feta cheese and walnuts is common. Apparently even brie cheese and pecan can work well – though i haven’t tried that myself!
This combo may sound strange but it was very good 🙂
I know that this isn’t much of a recipe but i think i am going to post more “non recipe meals” as inspiration and for people who may search for different meals. Not all recipes have to be exact, they can instead be inspiration 🙂
