We all have a lot going on during the holidays, most of us will find ourselves needing two things, finger foods, and…a break. Thankfully this recipe helps out with both of those. This holiday toast is a super quick and easy appetizer that is guaranteed to please both cheese lovers and vegans alike. This festive finger food features local sourdough bread from Gulf Coast Sourdough, creamy vegan chive cheese from another local company, Catalyst Creamery, some sweet and savory festive jam, and of course, hydroponic arugula from Brick Street Farms. You can find all of these ingredients at the Brick Street Farms Market!

Seed and Nut Beach Baguette from Gulf Coast Sourdough

Spreadable chive cashew cheese from Catalyst Creamery

Red Bell Pepper, Raspberry & Chilli jam from Nicolas Vahe

BSF micro arugula


All you have to do is slice and toast your baguette, you can use your toaster or your oven. If you choose to use the oven, I suggest drizzling your bread with some olive oil beforehand. Once your bread is toasted, spread on the vegan chive cheese and top that with some of the pepper and raspberry jam. Lastly, sprinkle some micro arugula on top! It doesn’t get much easier than that. Enjoy!
