Bruschetta with fresh goat cheese and shaved asparagus

Asparagus are wonderful roasted, sautéed (especially with a pat of butter), braised or even puréed in soups — but they’re also delicious raw!

Here raw asparagus are shaved in delicate ribbons and served with crusty bread slices, topped with fresh goat cheese and chive-infused oil. The slightly crunchy, green-tasting asparagus are superb when prepared this way.

Best of all, the bruschette are assembled in minutes and make a dramatic hors d’oeuvre, appetizer or antipasto.

Bon appétit!

Now… how about making these scrumptious Avocado and grilled onion tartines with roasted coriander-lime vinaigrette?

Wow, this looks amazingly elegant! I’m not a huge fan of goats cheese so I would probably change it for some marinated feta cheese or something. But anyway back to my point, this looks beautiful and like it would taste absolutely sublime :)
