Pomegranates are in season from fall through the winter, perfect for the holidays, so deep in color, delightfully tart, and perfectly crisp yet juicy. And, if there’s one thing we’ve learned from Silvia recently: pomegranates are the new essential holiday ingredient. They just scream December!
We love crostinis as appetizers. They’re the perfect canapé – crunchy, bite-sized, and tasty. For the holidays, they’re easy to make. They don’t take any room up in the oven (unless that’s how you toast them), and they’re easily transportable. Plus, you get the benefit of looking like you slaved away over these little beauties when really it’s just a fancy mini, open-faced sandwich. They don’t even need to be served warm!
Silvia is at it again. These Avocado and Tofu Crostinis we just can’t stop drooling over! So, even better, these crostinis are vegan.
Take a half french baguette and slice into pieces. Toast your pieces of bread until just slightly browned. For each piece of toast, generously spread Toby’s Lite Tofu Spread & Dip and top with a slice of avocado. Repeat for each piece of toast. Arrange on parchment paper or a cutting board. Sprinkle your pomegranate seeds and chopped chives on the baguette slices. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
And seriously, that’s all!
