Arugula Crostini with Boerenkaas Cheese
- 1 Sourdough or French Baguette
- 1 Garlic Clove
- 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
- 4 c Arugula Coarsely chopped
- 5 Cherry Tomatoes Quartered
- 1/8 tsp Kosher Salt
- 8 Thin Slices Boernkaas Cheese Or other semi-firm to firm cheese
Gently heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in frying pan on medium heat until shimmering. Add arugula, cherry tomatoes and 1/8 tsp of salt and sauté until wilted.
Meanwhile cut 8 slices of sourdough baguette and toast slices under a broiler until lightly browned. Cut clove of garlic in half and gently rub cut side over toasts when they come out of oven.
Top crostini with large spoonful of greens and top with shaved semi-hard cheese. I chose Natural Pastures Boerenkaas which is semi-firm and has a lot of yummy, tangy flavour but you could use a nice aged cheddar or even thin shavings of Parmesan. I believe Boerenkaas is a type of Dutch farmers cheese, somewhat like Gouda so you could try that too!
