If you are thinking about a light, savoury appetiser, then this is just the right recipe for you! Although mainly made of milk, goat's cheese and Parmigiano Reggiano are known for being easily digestible: the first one thanks to its shorter fat molecules compared to cow's milk, the second one because it contains 7,5% of free-form amino acids, which need no digestion. In fact, they are already pre-digested and ready to produce all the enzymes needed for optimal food digestion, thus speeding up the process. Combined with the hazelnuts and fresh herbs, these cheese starters will brighten up your meal and satisfy your taste buds!
