An aperitif with friends is always an extremely pleasant convivial moment, one of those appointments during which chit-chatting must be enlivened by good wine but also good food such as Teff tartlets.

Chips, peanuts are always available but, let’s be honest, they are not the right solution. That’s why you need a few extra ideas to make a special and appetising aperitif to share also with the little ones. That’s right, because they can be an interesting and tasty way to get children to eat the much ‘dreaded’ vegetables (such as Vegetable and tuna flan).

Therefore, we propose our recipe for preparing tasty and colourful Teff tartlets with Squacquerone cheese and vegetables.
