The sweet + savoury combo of these peach toasts is to die for, and the simplicity of this recipe really allows the flavour of fresh summer peaches to shine. These take only a few minutes to make and are ideal for a quick lunch or snack! Make sure you use the best (and ideally local) peaches + basil you can find! 🙂
Sliced fresh sourdough bread
Soft cheese of choice (ricotta or cream cheese work well, or a vegan cashew cheese)
2 fresh peaches, thinly sliced (ripe but firm)
Fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
Salt + pepper to taste
Set your oven on broil and drizzle your bread slices with olive oil and a pinch of salt. Place in the oven to toast for a few minutes, keeping an eye on them to make sure they don’t burn.
When toasted as desired, top each with a big spoonful of cheese of choice, a few fresh peach slices and a couple ribbons on basil.
Whisk together your olive oil, balsamic, salt + pepper and drizzle this mixture over your toasts. Serve immediately!
