The Bosc pear – in season at the moment – is famed for it’s dense, juicy, smooth flesh which is why it’s also known as the king of pears. Dress a few slices of pear with blueberries, raspberries, figs and some yoghurt for a quick fix breakfast loaded with flavour and nutrients.
Sweet figs & gorgonzola
This is my kind of starter (or with a small salad a great light meal), it takes about 5 minutes to prepare and it makes the most of fresh seasonal ingredients.
Fig & Gorgonzola Crostini with Roasted nuts
– 4 slices of ciabatta loaf
– 6-8 sweet figs depending on the size
– 240gms gorgonzola cheese
– 80gms mixed roasted nuts
– Fig infused balsamic
Toast the ciabatta lightly, drizzle with small amount of olive oil. Divide the gorgonzola in 4 portions and top the crostini, slice your figs into thick slices place on top, sprinkle with roasted nuts and dress with balsamic.
