    300g Red Grapes

    1 Ciabatta Baguette

    200g Soft Cheese

    1 Garlic Clove

    50ml Balsamic Vinegar

    2 tbsp. Olive Oil

    2 Sprigs Fresh Thyme

    Pinch of Salt & Pepper


    Preheat the oven 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5.

    Remove the grapes from the stem and combine with 1 tbsp. olive oil, thyme, salt and pepper.

    Roast the grapes for 15-20 minutes until softened.

    Slice the baguette into 1cm slices and brush with the remaining olive oil and place on a baking tray (you should get around 20).

    Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden.

    Gently rub the whole garlic clove over each piece of toasted ciabatta.

    Pour any grape juice from the roasted grapes into a saucepan and add the balsamic vinegar.

    Heat the vinegar and juice to a simmer and leave to reduce to syrup (around 10-15 minutes).

    To serve spread the cream cheese onto each piece of toast and top with the roasted grapes then drizzle over the balsamic glaze and serve.
