On Thanksgiving, Gwyneth Paltrow cheered three ‘ridiculously easy’ Christmas appetizers.
In a video posted Thursday, the actress showed how easy it is to whip up quick appetizers that will make people “think you’re so fancy.”
The 50-year-old goop founder shared recipes for: fries with caviar, something she calls ‘Diablo’, and a sauce made with anchovies called ‘Bagna Cauda’.
‘That was so easy!’ Gwyneth Paltrow, 50, while making three simple but unique appetizers just in time for the holidays.
The first recipe on the list was ‘Fries with Caviar’. The ingredients obviously included French fries and caviar.
To simplify the appetizer a bit, she added sour cream and chives for garnish.
“I feel like I’m playing the system,” he said. ‘That was so easy!’

The second appetizer he called ‘Diablo’, which he explained means ‘devil’ in Spanish.
However, the appetizer does not include any element that makes it spicy. Instead, the ‘devil’ is ‘crispy and sweet’.
The former Iron Man star stuffed pitted prunes with a “goat and sheep feta.”

He then wrapped those prunes in ham before popping them in the oven.
“Just make sure that when you’re making something really simple, it’s only three ingredients, that the quality of the ingredients is really good.”
For his third appetizer of the day, he made a ‘Bagna Cauda’, which he explains is Italian for ‘hot bath’.
The secret ingredient? “Either I need more alcohol or I need to get kicked out of work for two weeks,” she teased as she prepared the last appetizer.
Paltrow creates “a cohesive, creamy, umami-like sauce” by combining olive oil, butter, garlic, and a handful of anchovies in a skillet.
To enjoy this gluten-free and vegan appetizer, dip bitter leafy greens into the sauce.
He further explained that he sometimes opted for thin slices of bread to enjoy this appetizer.
“Either I need more alcohol or I need to get kicked out of work for two weeks,” he joked as he prepared the last appetizer.
