Gwyneth Paltrow shares how to make three ‘ridiculously easy’ holiday appetizers that will make people ‘think you’re so fancy’
On Thanksgiving Day, Gwyneth Paltrow whipped up three ‘ridiculously easy’ holiday appetizers.
In a video posted on Thursday, the actress showed just how easy it is to make quick fix appetizers that will still make people ‘think you’re so fancy’.
The goop founder, 50, shared the recipes for: potato chips with caviar, something she calls the ‘Diablo’, and a sauce made with anchovies called the ‘Bagna Cauda’.
The first recipe on the list was ‘Potato Chips with Caviar’. The ingredients included — obviously — potato chips and caviar.
To make the appetizer a little less simplified, she added sour cream and chives to garnish.
‘I feel like I’m gaming the system,’ she said. ‘That was so easy!’
The second appetizer she called the ‘Diablo’ — which she explained means ‘devil’ in Spanish.
However, the hors d’oeuvre does not include any element that makes it spicy. Instead, the ‘diablo’ is ‘crispy and sweet’.
The former Iron Man star filled up pitted prunes with a ‘goat and sheep feta-ish cheese’.
She then wrapped those prunes in prosciutto before popping them into the oven.
‘Just make sure that when you’re doing something really simple — it’s only three ingredients — that the quality of the ingredients is really good.’
For her third appetizer of the day, she made a ‘Bagna Cauda’ — which she explains is Italian for ‘hot bath’.
Paltrow creates ‘one cohesive, unctuous, umami-like sauce’ by combining olive oil, butter, garlic, and a handful of anchovies in a pan.
To enjoy this gluten-free and vegan appetizer, she dipped bitter leafy greens into the sauce.
She further explained that she would sometimes opt for thin slices of bread to enjoy this appetizer.
