The first time I ever tried a baked brie berry bruschetta dish was about 10 years ago at the News Cafe in Miami. My friend thought it was disgusting. I thought it was life changing.

Not much has changed since then.

I try to avoid dairy products the majority of the time (as they can be difficult for our bodies to digest), but I blame the reason that my diet isn’t 100% vegan on cheese.

I love cheese.

There are some great vegan cheeses out there, but I also love real cheese. So many kinds. Mozzarella, Toscano, Goat, Gouda… the list goes on.

So when I do have my cheese fix, I generally pair it up with grilled vegetables or with fruit so I don’t feel completely guilty.

That’s where this delicious berry bruschetta comes in.

For this dish, any type of berry will do: raspberries, blueberries, blackberries or strawberries. (Or all four!)

Balsamic by itself can be a tad too bitter with the fruit, but paired with a few scoops of raw honey and it’s perfect.

For the mini-toasts, you can either cut a baguette into small slices and bake the slices into the oven for several minutes until crispy, or you can purchase a box of mini toast crisps (I used a box of Brioche toast from Trader Joe’s.)
