ABOUT THE FLAVOR ORIGIN
Crisp, buttery crostini are topped with a creamy spread, sautéed shiitakes, sweet ripe figs and warm mushroom deli slices with flavors of balsamic and porcini mushrooms. Perfect with a glass of red wine to share with friends.
2 tbsp. plant-based buttery spread, melted
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 cup shiitake mushroom caps, sliced ¼” thick
Pinch sea salt and pepper
½ tsp. balsamic vinegar
½ cup plant-based cream cheese
2 tbsp. fig spread
2 ripe black figs, each cut into 8 slices
4 slices Field Roast Mushroom and Balsamic Plant-Based Deli Slices
¼ cup micro basil
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
With a serrated knife, diagonally cut the demi-baguette into 8 slices. Arrange the slices on a small baking sheet and brush tops with some of the melted plant-based buttery spread. Turn slices over and brush the other side. Bake in the oven for 5 minutes, then turn the slices over and bake for an additional 3 to 4 minutes until crispy and light golden.
Heat the olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sliced shitake mushrooms and sauté, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 4 minutes until golden. Remove from the heat and scoop the mushrooms out into a small dish, seasoning with salt, pepper and balsamic vinegar. In the warm skillet, two at a time, place the Field Roast Mushroom and Balsamic Plant-Based Deli Slices, just for a few seconds, until gently warmed through. Cut the slices in half and fold over into quarters.
To assemble the mushroom crostini, spread 1 Tbsp. of the plant-based cream cheese generously over each crisp baguette slice. Top with a little fig spread, some sautéed shiitake mushrooms and 2 thin slices of fresh ripe fig.
Nestle the folded mushroom deli slices on top. Sprinkle with micro basil and serve while still warm. These crostini bites are great on their own as a little snack or as part of a larger antipasti platter served with olives, roasted almonds, sundried tomatoes and your favorite dips.
