It has a creamy, fresh and delicate texture and is very easy to prepare.

It turns into a paste that reminds you of the softness of butter left at room temperature and fits perfectly with the crunchy surface of a slice of freshly baked bread.
If you want, you can add a little crushed garlic and turn it into guacamole. Top with a few pieces of your favorite tomato variety and enjoy the early hours of the morning. Add a good fruit juice or coffee and breakfast is ready.
Yes, you read that right, you can use the well-known aromatic sauce, obtained from basil, olive oil and parmesan, to prepare a delicious and quick sandwich, which you can take with you to work. In addition to the sauce, you also need a few slices of meat (ham, muscle, etc.) and some slices of mozzarella. To finish it, it is ideal to put the combination in the microwave for a few minutes, so that the cheese has the opportunity to melt a little, covering the meat and toast. Then add a few slices of tomato. Good appetite!
Croutons with feta cheese and corn
For this recipe you need a baguette to cut into slices, penetrating the knife slightly diagonally. Use the toaster to get the crunchy texture that gives the charm of croutons recipes. In a mixer, mix the feta cheese with a little sour cream, until you get a fine and homogeneous composition that is good to put a little in the fridge (about 30 minutes).
The boiled corn grains must be drained of water, so first put them in a large strainer and then place them on a plate covered with napkins, to absorb as much moisture as possible. If you do not have enough patience for this step, the toast will soften from the water drained from the corn and the preparation will not come out as well.
You need a few more tomatoes, which you have to wash and cut into small pieces, so that you can slip them on the slices of baguette together with the plum. For flavor, add fresh, finely chopped basil leaves.
Spread the cream cheese on the slices of toast and place corn kernels on top. In a small bowl, mix the tomatoes and basil with a little olive oil, salt and pepper, then fill the slices by gently placing the combination, with a teaspoon, for corn and cheese. It is a snack suitable for any time of day, quick to prepare, which is served as soon as it is ready.
