pear crostini flower elixir recipe

Marigold Pear + Goat Cheese Crostini
Makes 12 Appetizers

Ingredients
  • 1 large pear, any variety
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter, softened
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinaigrette
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp Chinese Five Spice
  • 1 baguette
  • 6 oz spreadable cheese (we used plain goat cheese, but a vegan cheese like Kite Hill is yummy, too)
  • Pomegranate seeds + marigold petals for garnish
  • Your favorite flower elixir (we used Radiant Energy!)
Method
  1. Wash and dry your pear, then small dice and add to a small saucepan over medium low heat.
  2. To the saucepan, add honey, butter, cinnamon and Chinese Five Spice and stir until ingredients are well combined. Allow to cook until the butter is melted and pears begin to soften, about 5-7 minutes.
  3. While the pear mixture is cooking, slice your baguette and brush each piece with vegan butter or olive oil and toast until golden brown. Slice baguette at an angle so pieces are easy to grab!
  4. Remove pears from the stove top and stir in balsamic vinaigrette. Set aside.
  5. Spread cheese on warm baguette slices and top with the pear mixture.
  6. Garnish crostinis with pomegranate seeds and marigold petals, then drizzle with a few drops of your favorite flower elixir. Enjoy!

 

Happy holidays!
