Strawberry Bruschetta

WebMD Recipe from EatingWell.com

Strawberry Bruschetta

Astoundingly good for minimal effort, this makes an indulgent weekend breakfast or anyday dessert. A judicious smear of mascarpone (half the fat of butter) is part of the luxury, but even lighter low-fat cream cheese will work as well. The real secret is warming the berries just enough to make the flavor bloom and transform their juices into a rosy syrup.

This Recipe Is:
Ingredients
Prep: 15 minutes | Total Time: 15 minutes
  • 4   thick slices
    whole-wheat bread
  • 6   tablespoons
    light brown sugar
  • 1   teaspoon
    grated lemon zest
  • 2   teaspoons
    lemon juice
  • 3   cups
    sliced or diced hulled strawberries
  • 4   tablespoons
    mascarpone, (Italian cream cheese)
Instructions
  1. Toast bread in a toaster.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over high heat. Add sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice and cook, stirring, until the sugar melts and the mixture begins to bubble, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add strawberries and stir until juices begin to exude and the berries are heated through, 30 seconds to 1 minute more.
  3. Spread 1 tablespoon mascarpone on each piece of toast. Top with the warm berries.
