Peachy Pesto Toast

Recipe:  Peachy Pesto Toast 

Author: Kelly King Corbin, Hamama Grower

Prep Time: 15 Mins

Cook Time: 0 Mins

Makes: 2 Pieces


I can’t say that I’m quite ready for summer to end, so for now I’m savoring all of the remaining summer produce. Peaches are my favorites; I follow the Georgia Peach Truck stops here in Wisconsin so I can get tons of fresh Georgia Peaches towards the end of Summer! I am always looking for news ways to use them & I stumbled across Hamama grower Kelly King Corbin’s eye-catching Peach Toast! Here is a version inspired by her great idea (the pictures are hers!).


*TIPS* Put these toppings on Crostini for a tasty, beautiful, and bite-sized snack to share! You could even just toss these ingredients together over a bed of mixed greens/arugula, add some toasted pecans, and make a lovely end-of-summer salad! 

Ingredients: 

  • 2 slices of Bread, sliced, drizzled with olive oil, and grilled or toasted
  • 1 peach (firm, yet ripe)
  • Feta cheese crumbles to taste (Can sub goat cheese or fresh mozzarella)
  • Heirloom or cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • A couple of thin red onion slices (optional) 
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • Balsamic Vinegar, for drizzling
  • A few leaves of arugula
  • Hamama Microgreens - Super Salad Mix is great on this! 

Basil & Microgreen Pesto:

  • 1 packed cup basil and your favorite Microgreens (Radish adds a nice bite! Mint is also a lovely addition). 
  • ¼ cup pine nuts, toasted (you could also use walnuts, pecans, or almonds)
  • 1 garlic clove, roughly chopped
  • Juice and zest from ½ lemon
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil, more if desired
  • Pinches red pepper flakes
  • Sea salt and fresh black pepper

Instructions: 

  1. Slice peaches into 6 segments per peach.
  2. Make the pesto: Combine the microgreens, basil, nuts, garlic, lemon juice and zest, and olive oil in a small food processor with pinches of red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Pulse to combine, adding more oil for a smoother pesto, or leaving it chunky – whichever consistency you prefer!
  3. Assemble toast: Top the toasted bread with a dollop of pesto, arugula, feta crumbles, red onion, tomatoes, and fresh peach slices! Garnish with more Hamama microgreens!
ENJOY! -Allie
