Cherry & Cheese Delight Bites
Bread + Goat Cheese + Cherry Reduction = Perfection.
There isn’t much more to say. Other than the fact that this is a perfect appetizer to share, or to eat as a post-workout snack.
The bread has carbohydrates to replenish glycogen stores, the tart cherry has antioxidants to reduce inflammation, and the goat cheese is a good source of protein, specifically casein, a milk protein that provides a steady release of amino acids to build muscle over time.
A nutritious and delicious twist on Crostini that won’t disappoint!
1 cup dried dried tart or Montmorency cherries
1/2 cup water
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
8 ounces goat cheese
1-2 baguettes, sliced. Bonus if you find whole wheat baguettes.
Fresh sage leaves, thinly sliced
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Place the baguette slices in a single layer on a baking sheet.
Toast 10-15 minutes until golden brown
