12 slices bakery-style Italian bread (baguette), toasted or grilled* ¼ cup chopped pan-toasted walnuts or roasted pistachios
3 tablespoons fresh pomegranate arils (seeds)
1 tablespoon honey or coconut nectar
½ teaspoon sea salt flakes
1. Make the “compote”: In a medium bowl, stir together the honey, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Add the sliced pears and thyme leaves; stir to combine. Ideally, let stand for at least 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.2. Make the bruschetta: In a small bowl, stir together the goat cheese, yogurt, and salt. Top the toast slices with the goat cheese mixture; arrange on a platter. Drain the pear “compote” and arrange on the toasts, ideally one pear slice each. Sprinkle with the nuts, pomegranate arils, honey, and sea salt flakes, and serve.*For extra wholesomeness, choose whole grain, fruit-nut, or seeded baguette or batard. For extra richness, brush bread slices with extra-virgin olive oil before oven-toasting or grilling.DOWNLOAD RECIPE CARD
