2015-10-04 12.44.20Preheat oven to 400°F or Broil.

Brush or lightly drizzle bread with olive oil.

2015-10-04 12.50.51Mix together goat cheese, lemon zest, minced garlic, Baobab Fruit Powder, half the parsley, salt and pepper.

Using a spatula or butter knife to spread Baobab Goat Cheese mix onto each slice of toast until you run out (or have too many, but you could never have too many!). I like spreading it unevenly for aesthetics.2015-10-04 13.07.58

Place loaded bread slices on a baking sheet and into the oven for 5-7 minutes, or until goat cheese is lightly golden and bread is toasted.

Garnish with whatever you desire – tomato, oregano and salt; olive oil and black pepper; honey and basil; figs and balsamic reduction – the possibilities are endless! If you go with pine nuts, pre-toast them on the stove or throw them on before putting the bruschetta in the oven so they can get all toasty together.

Your guests will be so impressed with these beautiful appetizers, they’ll ask you for your secret. Go on and tell them, it’s baobab fruit powder! Three cheers for healthy eating.
