Dates — 20–25 pcs.

Goat cheese — 200 g

Peeled pis­ta­chios — 2/3 cup

Thyme — 3–4 sprigs (I used dried)


Peel pis­ta­chios and chop with a knife.

Grate the cheese on a fine grater, mix with pis­ta­chios and thyme leaves.

Cut each date along one side, remove the pit, stuff it, put it in a bak­ing dish.

Bake at 180 degrees for 15 min­utes.

Serve with red wine.

If you are prepar­ing a pic­nic appe­tiz­er, then stuffed dates need to be wrapped in foil and they will only have to be baked on coals. This appe­tiz­er is good to sat­is­fy your hunger while the kebab is being fried.
