Strawberry Bruschetta with Goat Cheese & Pine Syrup

Pine syrup is made from real pine and has an amazing taste of forest, wood, and citrus. If you can’t find any then use balsamic instead.

This dish make me happy because I can use all of my favorite ingredients in one place: bread, goat cheese, herbs, and pine syrup.

Serves 6

You will need:
12 slices baguette
olive oil
1⁄2 cup crumbled goat cheese
10 fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced
fresh basil
pepper, to taste
pine syrup

  1. Heat the oil in a pan and toast the bread until golden on each side.
  2. Place toast on a platter.
  3. Spread a layer of goat cheese on each piece and top with strawberries, basil, and pepper.
  4. Finish off with some drops of pine syrup.
