Goats cheese Crostini with roasted Grapes

Goats cheese Crostini with roasted Grapes was my answer when the children asked: “Mom, what are we eating?”

Goats cheese Crostini with roasted Grapes was most definitely not the answer they were waiting for so it was met with visible disapproval from both. Quite frankly I couldn’t be bothered as I have been wanting to make this forever. I saw it on Pinterest, but the grapes were roasted with balsamic and I was afraid it would take over.

So I roasted the grapes, just like that. When it was done, slightly charred, I added a drizzle of honey. That was the one component of this delightful snack. The goats cheese, well for me there is only one choice and that is Fairview. The chevin is perfect already, but I even added some honey here and gave it a good whip for that luxurious mousse texture. The of course, who can resist toasted walnuts, with just a little pinch of salt.

I have to say, the kiddos asked me to make some again later tonight, so they loved it. The roasted grapes seem like a strange idea, but think grape jam….. same thing, just healthier!

So without further ado, here then is one of the most delicious snacks you will ever eat and serve. You’re welcome!

Goats cheese Crostini with roasted Grapes

serves 6 – 8

Ingredients

1 big bunch red grapes – I like the smaller variety, they are sweeter when toasted

125 ml walnuts

a few drizzles of honey

1 x 100 g Fairview Chevin

1 french loaf – lightly oiled and toasted

fresh herbs

Method

Preheat oven to 200 C. Place the grapes on a baking sheet, lined with baking paper. Roast for about 20 minutes until some of the grapes have burst and others are charred. Remove from the oven and drizzle a little honey over the grapes. At the same time toast the bread until light golden in color. Use the same baking sheet to toast the walnuts and drizzle with honey and sprinkle some sea salt on the nuts.

While the bread is toasting, whip the goast cheese with 1-2 T honey until light and fluffy. Spread the whipped goats cheese liberally on the bread. Serve with the roasted grapes and walnuts for a light lunch or drinks with your friends.

The drink of choice here is Fairview Rose Quartz. Winemakers challenged themselves to elevate the status of this often underappreciated style of wine, by creating something truly crafted. Our rose petal pink Rose Quartz is a more serious style of rosé, made combining Carignan, Grenache and Cinsault. An absolute must try.
