You can eat almost anything on a slice of toasted sourdough. It's a great vessel for sweet and savoury toppings, for breakfast, lunch, or just a snack. 'If all else fails, make toast' – that's my motto.
This recipe is a firm favourite of mine, thanks to the wonderful combination of flavours: sweet, juicy roasted pear, creamy almond cheese, toasted hazelnuts, crunchy toast, and fragrant thyme. Not forgetting the all-important pinch of sea salt.
This recipe can be made into little crostini canapes for gatherings, or served as a starter – but I love it most when enjoyed as a decadent brunch.
2 large slices sourdough bread
2 ripe pears, quartered or sliced lengthways into 1cm strips
¼ cup maple syrup
150g creamy almond cheese – I use Nush Foods
¼ cup toasted hazelnuts, roughly chopped
A few sprigs thyme
¼ tsp sea salt
