Happy almost 2017! I hope your Christmas holidays were full of love and laughter and endless amounts of these cookies, these cookies, and this eggnog. I have one more recipe to share before we dip into the New Year – this Cranberry Goat Cheese Crostini. Super quick, as easy as spreading jam on toast and done in no time. Oh and did I mention – it’s also so delicious!

Here’s the thing about the holidays. After Thanksgiving you end up with so much leftover cranberry sauce, and if you make it again for Christmas, same “problem”. I mean, it isn’t really an issue in this house because I just spread it on all the sandwiches. What is does mean is that you can make these cranberry “goat cheese” crostini in no time because it consists of cranberry sauce, vegan soft cheese spread aka the goat cheese, and a baguette. So easy.

Making the actual dish is as easy as bringing the ingredients to room temperature, toasting the bread for five minutes, and then spreading on the vegan goat cheese, and then the cranberry sauce. You could as easily use any other soft vegan cheese such as my homemade cheese ball or even a delight you found at the grocery store. P.S. That black soapstone piece that these are sitting on is actually designed to bake the bread on, AND keep the appetisers warm for up to 30 minutes. Highly recommend it for future appetisers. Not that these even lasted 30 minutes in our house…

 Even though I’ve given you instructions and measurements, the world is your oyster. Want more cheese? No problem. Want to use a different kind instead? Also completely fine. Want to triple the amount of cranberry sauce – joking not joking – go ahead. You can even add some parsley, basil or sage to brighten it up which is totally optional. I just wanted to keep this appetiser completely customisable and simple for you.
