Author: 
Recipe type: Appetizer
Serves: 8 - 10 pieces
 
A gorgeous appetizer with unique and delicious flavors. The goat cheese is creamy and tangy, the blueberries are tart, sweet, and juicy, and the thyme adds a subtle earthy, lemony flavor.
Ingredients
  • 1.5 cups fresh blueberries
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey, plus extra for drizzling
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • 5 ounces goat cheese, softened
  • 1 8-inch loaf of bread
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 to 3 fresh sprigs of thyme, plus extra for garnish
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to broil.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  3. Slice the baguette into ½-inch slices, brush the tops with a little olive and place them on the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Place the pan directly under the broiler and cook for about 60 seconds or until very lightly browned. Watch them closely so they don't burn. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.
  5. Add the blueberries, water, one tablespoon of honey, and a pinch of salt and pepper to a small pan.
  6. Bring to a boil and let cook for about 4 minutes or until the blueberries begin to pop open and the liquid has slightly reduced. Transfer to a bowl to cool.
  7. To assemble the crostini, spread a thin layer of goat cheese each piece of toasted bread.
  8. Using a slotted spoon, top each piece with about a tablespoon of blueberries.
  9. Lightly drizzle each piece with honey.
  10. Remove the tiny leaves from the sprigs of thyme and sprinkle over the top.
  11. Serve immediately.
