Our Disclaimer (The serious stuff)

By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

One portion of this dish contains around 113g of protein, 144g of fat, and a total of 2107 calories. This recipe serves 1 and costs $9.43 per serving. It works well as an expensive hor d'oeuvre. This recipe is liked by 1 foodies and cooks. It is brought to you by Foodista. If you have cabbage, cup ½ mixture of muenster and daisy cheese, baguette, and a few other ingredients on hand, you can make it. With a spoonacular score of 86%, this dish is super. Similar recipes are Goat Cheese and Chorizo Crostini, Yuca Chorriada con Chorizo (Cassava with Chorizo and Cheese Sauce), and Queso Fundido con Chorizo Verde y Rajas (Melted Cheese with Green Chorizo and Roasted Pepper Strips).

Chianti, Sparkling rosé, and Sparkling Wine are my top picks for Crostini. If you're serving a selection of appetizers, you can't go wrong with these. Both are very food friendly and complement a variety of flavors. The Brancaia Chianti Classico Riserva with a 4.5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 28 dollars per bottle.

Brancaia Chianti Classico Riserva

This Chianti Classico Riserva shows tropical and black fruit aromas, with notes of nut and almond on the palate. Crafted with the finest Sangiovese grapes from two of our estate vineyards, Brancaia Estate and Poppi Vineyard, this wine has a dense, ruby-red color and a long, aromatic finish. Blend: 80% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Heat a 12-inch cast-iron skillet. Add the chorizo, break it into chunks with a wooden spoon and cook over moderate heat, turning, until cooked through and lightly browned, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat to allow to cool. (This step can be done and advance and refrigerated overnight.) Grate cheeses and cabbage. Slice baguette into 1/4 slices on a slight diagonal angle. Place on a cooking sheet. (Consider lining with foil for easy clean-up since you will spoon the mixture on to each slice.) Combine the cheese and cabbage with the cooked chorizo. Using a spoon, top each baguette slice with one or two spoonfuls. Heat in the oven for 10 minutes to allow for cheese to melt and bread to get crispy.

Tips

Health Tips

  • If you're following a gluten-free diet, make sure your bread (and all other ingredients) is truly gluten free.

  • You have probably heard by now that whole wheat bread is better for you than white bread. While this is true and definitely worth considering, you should be aware that all bread (especially your typical supermarket loaves) will raise your blood sugar and should be eaten in moderation.

Green Tips

  • Good news: cabbage is not only cheap, it is also one of the "clean fifteen" so you do not have to spend extra to buy it organic, unless you really want to.
