One of my favourite recipes…

To keep you busy until you’re able to visit me in the Teaching Kitchen,
try this gluten-free / dairy-free, Paleo, and/or AIP recipe that is part of my weekly repertoire.

Bruschetta with Stone Fruit & Goat Cheese

— Gluten-Free —

Now that I have a great sourdough recipe, I’ve been taking full advantage the many wonderful bread-based appetizers that exist.  This one is perfect for making use of summer’s stone fruit. Sweet and tart, it’s light but still nutritious, and a splash of balsamic reduction makes it over the top delicious!



2 slices GF sourdough bread, toasted
olive oil / lemon juice
goat cheese
apricot, nectarine, cherries, small dice
balsamic reduction
(ie 1 cup balsamic vinegar, simmered to desired thickness)

      • Prepare all ingredients.
      • Combine olive oil and lemon juice in a small bowl while you toast your slices of bread.
      • When toast is ready, use a pastry brush to paint lemon / olive mixture on each slice of bread.
      • Place a layer of goat cheese slices on each slice of bread.
      • Add stone fruit mixture, and sprinkle with balsamic reduction.
      • Garnish with fresh herbs (basil, lemon thyme) as desired.
