Aubergine and caprese towers: an appetizer with a wow effect – CLUB LA

Attention, this recipe is aimed at all pretenders: these aubergine and caprese towers are beautiful to look at and taste fantastic! They are the perfect appetizer: not overwhelming, easy to make and a great start to an Italian meal.

I use vegan mozzarella for the Auberge Caprese towers because I’ve been eating animal-free for a while now. If you can’t find plant-based mozzarella in your local supermarket, try an organic store. If that doesn’t work, you can replace the cheese with a plant-based cheese. That flavor is just as good. The recipe doesn’t quite follow the idea of ​​capris, but hey, if it tastes good! Anyone who doesn’t eat a vegan diet can easily use regular mozzarella cheese.

Fortunately, the recipe is very easy to prepare and finish before the menu. You can send the egg to the tube for the first round and prepare other ingredients. But they also occupied the construction of the towers of the Auberge Capres and the second round of the furnace. You just have to put the small structures together and bake them when your guests arrive.
