I love things that require only a few ingredients. As the heat continues, and continues to steal my energy away, the ability to throw a few things together in little time has saved many meals. I mean, I have pages scribbled with recipe ideas, posts half-drafted and lacking only the food to tie it up in a bow. But being in the kitchen for more than 15 minutes at a time? Please. Give me some bread and toppings and I’ll be a happy girl.
Eating like this reminds me of our time in Paris. It’s not that we ever ate bruschetta there, but we chose to have many of our lunches on a park bench, sharing a baguette sandwich and fruit while we attempted to soak up the last of our pre-baby time. Simple meals bring me back to those afternoons of soaking up an early spring sun, wandering foreign streets, and being blissful in the moment.
I was really excited to see shallots in my produce delivery. I never had shallots until I was an adult, so whenever I see them at the grocery store they seem too extravagant to purchase. Now that my countertops are littered with shallots, I have plenty to experiment with. I’ve pulled together some of the last summer peaches, crunchy walnuts, and softened shallots for a topping that celebrates summer while looking forward to the autumn ahead.
- 1 large peach
- 3 shallots
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/4 cup walnuts
- Sliced French bread
- Halve, de-pit, and peel peach. Cut into small chunks and put into a bowl.
- Heat a small saucepan over medium. Add olive oil and heat through. Peel shallots and slice thinly, then add to the pan. Lower heat to medium-low, and let shallots cook until soft.
- Chop or crumble walnuts by hand and add to the shallots, gently toasting until fragrant. Remove from heat and stir mixture into peaches. Let sit for a moment while you toast the bread.
- Top each slice of bread with a generous scoop.
