Tapas” small Spanish savory dishes, typically served with drinks at a bar, and On my recent trip to Spain, I have a lot of memories of some great tapas dishes which I would treasure. From a platter of grilled cheese served with berries in Granada, to a beautiful mushroom in Seville, I loved them all and the concept of Tapas makes the live simple as It can be just made into a main dish by just adding some carbohydrates or salad.

My challenge through summers was to serve an apt tapas-style dish to go well with A can of chilled beer. To go well with beer, the dish is required to have a kick from spices,and at the same time i want my dish to be lite as a starter to keep some space for the main course. Also a lite snack is welcome in the warm climate of Delhi.
So I traveled back to my trip to Prague and recalled how we enjoyed the grilled vegetables (especially the Aubergines and Asparagus) which were served with feta, and here goes my dish.
Herbed Quinoa and Feta filled Chargrilled Aubergines served with olive and pepper Gouda cheese ! Garnished with beetroot microgreens and Drizzled with chili oil for an extra kick! This is what took me a while to post my entry for nominations as I was waiting to try it out with my share of weekend Beer !!
It came out as a really admired one as Me and my better half liked the pepper and chili oil kind of kick, and at the same time the freshness from herbs, salty cheese. All married well in this dish.
Do make it and try it out with a chilled glass of beer. I do reckon that this would work well with A glass of white wine as well.

Its a super flavourful simple, grilled tapas, and can be served as mains with a tomato sauce and Herb Rice.
As a Tapas, it pairs very well with a chilled glass of beer and White wine.
