If there’s one food that I always keep ready for a last minute aperitif or starter, it’s piadine! Today we prepare some piadina baskets in two versions, one tastier than the other!
I love eating piadina for lunch or dinner but I love turning them into delicious finger food even more! Do you want some examples?
- Mini tacos: with a unique delicacy, with avocado, vegetables, corn and cheese, they are ideal for an aperitif with friends. Perfect if you have vegetarian but also vegan friends, just make them without cheese!
- Piadina cones: these are also really super tasty and perfect to customize in a thousand ways. In this recipe I prepared them with speck and Brie which go together perfectly!
Here, but let’s get to today’s recipe, piadina baskets in 2 versions: vegetarian and with cured meats! They can be prepared in an instant, put in the oven for 7 minutes and then filled as desired!
How to make piadina baskets
There are only two fundamental recommendations to avoid problems in preparation:
- Choose the ROLLABLE wraps: only with those can you obtain baskets of uniform piadinas without breakages. They are easily found in all supermarkets and there are many brands! Just look for the word “rollable” on the package and you’re done!
- Be quick: once taken out of the package, quickly cut out the circles and form the piadina baskets. This is important because the piadina must be elastic and soft to take the shape of the basket. If you are quick there will be no problems, you will get perfect baskets without giving the piadina time to dry.
If you keep these two tips in mind you won’t be able to go wrong, you will bring quick, delicious and excellent piadina baskets to the table!
PS: vegetarian friends, the version with stracchino, rocket and walnuts will win you over! And believe me, with a drizzle of honey on top they are truly incredible!
Dear piadina lovers, here we leave you with some other perfect ideas for you. But now… into the kitchen!
