Thyme Roasted Red Grapes on Goats Cheese and Grilled Bread
By Amy Crawford
Recently I found myself with a huge bag of sweet, seedless red grapes and got to thinking about what I could do with these juicy balls of goodness, other than popping them directly into my mouth of course.
It was suggested that I try roasting them, something that I'd not tried previously. I loved the idea of warm, jammy grapes on something crunchy. So it was that I found myself adapting this gorgeous recipe from Alexandra's Kitchen, and found myself eating this delicious creation for lunch, and again for breakfast the next day.
I think it would make for a beautiful brunch with friends or family. It's ridiculously simple to put together and I know you'll love the texture of the warm grapes, creamy cheese and crunchy bread!
Gluten free sourdough, sliced into thick pieces (or bread of choice)
Red grapes, ideally seedless!
A few sprigs of thyme
Sea salt & pepper
Preheat your oven to 200 degrees celsius.
Place your grapes on a baking tray. Drizzle with a little olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt, throw in some thyme sprigs and using your hands, gently toss. Pop into the oven until they start to pop, it was about 8 minutes for me.
Whilst the grapes are in the oven, heat your grill plate until hot. I chose to use my BBQ. Brush both sides of your bread with olive oil and grill until toasty and lines appear on the toast (aesthetics are important here folks).
Now it's time to assemble the deliciousness! Spread your toast thick with goats cheese and top with roasted grapes and some cracked pepper. Even consider smashing a few grapes over the toast. Devour!
If you'd love to try a super simple gluten free bread recipe, give this one a whirl.
Don't forget to let me know what you think of this recipe, I've a feeling you'll find it a family pleaser!
