fruits of labor
lately I've been addicted to this little late afternoon snack. When I saw it first on one of my favorite food blogs MyNewRoots I was intrigued by the thought of the roasted grapes. They did not disappoint. And though I have not yet attempted the homemade ricotta (i've been using a very soft delicious goat cheese) one of these weekends I will be giving it a whirl.
But for now- It makes a most delicious snack. Ive even been saving a few of the grapes for my oats in the morning.
Recipe from MyNewRoots : Ricotta on Toasts with Roasted Fruit
1 pear, sliced
half a cup of grapes or so
coconut oil, melted
slices of your favorite crunchy bread
preheat oven to 405°
toss grapes & pear in oil to lightly coat. Roast with thyme sprigs 8-10 minutes until grape skins split/pears slightly caramelized.
Toast bread and spread with cheese. add roasted fruit, drizzle with honey, S&P and serve.
