Bruschetta with baby asparagus and marinated goats feta

Bruschetta is one of my all time favourite sandwiches as it doesn’t need much to make it memorable.

It’s usually quite a simple creation of only a handful of ingredients, and it never fails to please.

This variation uses grilled baby asparagus, goats cheese and a little fresh thyme for a tasty autumnal brunch or antipasto dish.

I always use Meredith Valley goats cheese. It has the most beautiful creamy texture and comes in a jar of deliciously fragrant oil, infused with black peppercorns and thyme, I later use the oil in cooking. It’s easy to find at most delicatessens and it’s sold in Woolworths from time to time.
