a simple toast topped with creamy mascarpone cheese, honey, shaved radishes, course sea salt, black pepper & lots of olive oil
1 loaf whole grain/seedy bread
½ cup mascarpone cheese
cracked black pepper & sea salt
¼ cup honey
good quality extra-virgin olive oil
8 easter radishes, shaved
Slice the bread into ¾ inch slices. Coat the bottom of a large sauté pan with oil over medium-low heat. When the oil is hot, work in batches to toast the bread in the oil for about 3 minutes on each side. Remove the bread to a paper-towel lined tray. Season the bread immediately with salt while it’s still warm.
Use a spoon to spread the mascarpone over each slice of warm bread. Season the cheese with a generous amount of cracked black pepper and sea salt. Drizzle the honey and olive oil over the cheese, and garnish with the shaved radishes. Cut the toasts diagonally or leave whole.
