One of my favorite parts about the summer time is cooking with all of the seasonal and fresh product. Anything you make will always taste significantly better when you cook with whats in season, which is why I strive to take advantage of while I can. This whipped feta and peach bruschetta highlights one of my favorite summer fruits- peaches!

Brushetta is essentially a piece of toasted bread, rubbed with garlic and topped off with salt and olive oil in its most basic form. It is a classic Italian starter that was originated in ancient Rome. Throughout time bruschetta has evolved and not generally includes toppings such as veggies, tomatoes, cheeses, and cured meats. Here, the bruschetta features a combination of whipped feta, ricotta and fresh peaches.

How you can elevate this dish

This whipped feta and peach bruschetta is already an elevated version of bruschetta, but there are always easy things you can do to really heighten this dish. One easy enhancement you can make is by topping the bruschetta off with grilled peach. Another way to add flavor is by topping it off with a balsamic reduction.

  • 3 oz ricotta
  • 3 peaches thinly sliced
  • 5 mint leaves roughly chopped

To start make the whipped feta. Add the feta, cream cheese, olive oil, a small pinch of salt, and pepper to a blender or food processor and blend until whipped. Then reserve the whipped feta until needed.
Then toast the bread. Set a pan to medium heat, once hot throw the butter into the pan and toast the bread for 1-2 minutes until golden brown on each side.
Then assemble the whipped feta and peach bruschetta. To start spread on as much of the whipped feta as you would like on the sliced bread, top it off with a couple of sliced peaches, mint, basil and a drizzle of honey. Enjoy!
  • Feta on its own can be pretty salty so make sure to lightly season the whipped feta with salt and taste frequently.
  • Use fresh and season ingredients for the best results. You can easily substitute the peaches for whatever your favorite fruit or veggies are. Cooking with seasonal ingredients always results with the most delicious food.
