What are your favorite appetizers? I love things that are that perfect 2-3 bite dish. Whether you're looking to make a party out of a bunch of little bites or need a nibble to serve at your next barbecue this recipe is well suited to any occasion.
The Heat is On
Spring is in the air, the weather is beautiful, and it's the perfect time to get outside and fire up the grill. Gluten and Dairy Free Tomato Peach Bruschetta is a delicious treat to grill up, while also being easily adaptable to indoor cooking.
There's just something irresistible about that combination of sweet and savory. This dish not only melds the two worlds, it also is a fun play between textures and temperature.
Appetizers shouldn't be complicated. I don't want to spend all of my time in the kitchen while missing out on spending quality time with those that I love. With just three easy steps this dish comes together quickly. Open that bottle of wine or shake up a favorite cocktail, and you have the makings for a relaxed afternoon.
The heart of this dish starts with the bruschetta topping. Both fresh peaches and crimson, juicy tomatoes are lightly grilled. In addition to getting that kiss of smoke flavor, this also draws out and intensifies their natural sweetness. They're then cut up and mixed with fresh basil and D'Vash Organics Date Syrup.
I love using the natural sweetness of D'vash Organics Date Syrup. This one-to-one natural sweetener is low on the glycemic scale and made with only a single ingredients, dates. In this recipe it accents the natural sweetness of the peaches and tomatoes.
Since the grill is already on, go ahead and toss on slices of Gluten Free baguette slices and get a little char on them. Tying everything together is a creamy cloud of tangy Dairy Free cream cheese with Dairy Free parmesan. Are you hungry yet?
