Lately I’ve been all about creating effortless toasts. While I love your basic avocado toast, it’s fun to mix it up, and even more fun to mitigate waste! If there is one thing that goes bad so fast, it’s berries. Rather than freezing them, dehydrating them, I love to pickle them. Everyone pickles red onion, but I promise, berries are a million times better. That being said, I wanted to revisit my favorite pickled blueberries and create a fun festive toast that’s good year round.
Just like that the vegan Pickled Blueberry Toast with basil and lemon was born!
If you’re searching for the perfect vegan cheese for this toast, you have to try my vegan Herb Cashew Cheese! I love this cheese as it packs dry and fresh herbs, tons of flavor, you could even throw in spinach to not only garner more nutrients, but create a gorgeous hue! It’s packed with protein, filling, the texture is perfect, you could enjoy it by itself or throw in a pasta dish.
Now lets talk about these pickled blueberries! Since social distancing and experiencing a lack of food options, I’ve been trying pickling recipes. It’s a great way to salvage food on the way out and they can enhance countless dishes. While I love pickled veggies, I had yet to explore pickled fruit. What’s great about these blueberries, is honestly, everything! The flavor is much more impactful. They have a hint of sweet and spice and will leave you just thinking, wow. If you feel lost with what to do with pickled blueberries, you can really put them on anything as they are just that good!
What’s great this recipe? Everything. You can use these pickled blueberries on anything, but I love how seamless a morning toast is! These berries are quick easy, affordable, pack tons of flavor, this toast is perfect for any season, you can use small pieces of bread for entertaining, and make for the perfect bite with a glass of wine!
