Peach Tomato Crostini

Peach Tomato Crostini {Gluten-Free, Vegetarian} | Wheat-Free Meat-Free

On top of my fresh herb kick, I’ve now started a put-things-on-toast kick. I made my Herbed Bruschetta for a party recently and then had a bunch of leftover creme fraiche. We also received about 8 pounds of peaches in our CSA this week. So I made more toasts with mint, peaches, and tomatoes.

Preparing Peach Tomato Crostini | Wheat-Free Meat-Free

  • gluten-free baguette
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup creme fraiche
  • 1/3 ounce fresh mint, stems removed, cut in a chiffonade (3½ tablespoons)
  • 3 small tomatoes, thinly sliced (6 ounces)
  • 2 small peaches, thinly sliced (8-9 ounces)
  1. Slice the baguette on a bias into 12 ½-inch thick pieces. Lightly brush oil on both sides and place on a baking sheet. Place under a low broiler for 2 minutes. Remove and flip bread slices over. Return to the oven and toast another 2 minutes. Remove and allow to cool.
  2. Spread 1 teaspoon of creme fraiche onto each slice of bread. Divide the mint evenly between the crostini. Top each crostini with two slices of tomato, then two slices of peach. Serve.

Serves 3-4

As noted in the bruschetta recipe, I know broilers can vary quite a bit. Your best bet is to use a short amount of time, and keep an eye on the bread.

Personally, I am not a fan of raw tomatoes. I like the crostini better without them. But, I figure most everyone else is going crazy for tomatoes at the moment.

Salted Caramel Sauce + Whiskey Salted Caramel Milkshakes

Whiskey Salted Caramel Milkshakes | Wheat-Free Meat-Free

Salted Caramel Sauce

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  1. Place the sugar in a medium pot. Set over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until the sugar melts and turns dark brown in color, about 6-8 minutes. Remove from the heat. Stir in the butter and cream until well combined. Stir in the salt. Allow to cool.

Makes approximately 1 cup

It takes a bit for the sugar to start to melt, but once it does it browns quickly. If you have a candy thermometer, bring the sugar to 350°F, then remove from the heat. If the sugar starts to smell burnt, immediately remove from the heat.

This makes extra caramel sauce you can save for more milkshakes, or just to top other desserts. It will keep a week or so in the refrigerator.

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

Serves 2

We tried these with chocolate ice cream as well. I prefer chocolate to vanilla, but it seemed the caramel flavor was less prominent with the chocolate ice cream. It might be interesting to try adding in some chocolate chips like in the Irish Cream Coffee Smoothies.

I am aware there is some debate about whether whiskey can truly be gluten-free. If you have concerns, I would suggest making the milkshakes with rum or aged tequila. I think dark rum sounds particularly good.
