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 by salvaging produce on the way out If there is one thing that goes bad so fast, it’s berries. Rather than freezing them, dehydrating them, I actually 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 Strawberry Toast with Thyme and lemon was born!
Now let’s talk about these pickled strawberries! 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 strawberries, is honestly, everything! The flavor is much more impactful. They have a hint of sweet, notes of spices and will leave you just thinking, wow. If you feel lost with what to do with pickled strawberries, you can really put them on anything as they are just that good!
What’s great this recipe? Everything. You can use these pickled strawberries on everything, but I love how seamless the go with morning toast! These pickled berries are quick easy, affordable, pack tons of flavor, this toast is perfect for any season, you can use vegan cheese, you can do this concept using small pieces of bread for entertaining, and make for the perfect bite with a glass of wine!
