Blood & Nuts Toast


Blood & Nuts Toast is a super-easy, healthy breakfast or lunch. Blood Orange season is leaving and won’t be back until November! They pack a sweet, intense, vitamin-C, potassium and antioxidant punch that compliments the earthy, savory, protein and acidophilus-teeming nut cheese, and the dense, artisan bread.

The directions are simple: Toast the bread, put a slice of nut-cheese and a sliver of orange on top! Viola! Simple enough for a child, yet sophisticated enough for a discerning palate.

Some of my favorite breads right now are the yeast-free Men’s Bread & the Hemp Bread from French Meadow Bakery. French meadow also makes delicious vegan carrot cake, and other products. Hemp Bread Men's Bread®

Blood OrangeI got my organic  Blood Oranges at the 4th. St. Food Coop in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. If you’re outside of New York, check you local farmer’s market, coop, or grocery store. Blood oranges are a mutation of the sweet orange, and contain a pigment typically found in other fruits and flowers, but not usually in citrus.
