Toasty French baguette slices topped with fluffy ricotta, sweet grilled nectarines (or peaches), salty prosciutto, and herbaceous basil. The fresh intensity of a few flakes of Maldon salt and a drizzle of reduced balsamic vinegar on top set off this appetizer. This crostini is a combination of classic flavors in one bite. And an added benefit: you can get everything you need at TJ’s! There are no rules to this one - make as many as you want, and as messy as you want :)
Sweet Potato Toast is amazing!! It's so vibrant and colorful, and is a nutritious alternative to your regular wheat toast - not to mention it's paleo and gluten free! There are endless topping options, and today I'm sharing some yummy ideas with you to get you inspired. Sweet Potato Toast works with sweet or savory ingredients, and is so satisfying that a few of these make a wonderful meal. I'm all about using whatever you've got in the kitchen already, and the hearty, sweet flavor of the sweet potatoes is a great vessel for tons of versatility.
So that got me thinking. Avocado Toast. Is it just a California thing? And if it is, I can't see why...because it's delicious. Simple food that is easily elevated with the addition of one or two more ingredients...like prosciutto. And vibrant heirloom tomatoes; each one with their own vibrant color, flavor, and texture. This recipe isn't hard-fast - more like a simple guide for a visually beautiful, flavorful open-faced sandwich/toast that can inspire you to build your own. Sometimes the best meals come from throwing whatever you have in the fridge together.
