Smashed Blackberry & Goat Cheese


1 1/2 C. blackberries

1/2 C. blueberries

1 tsp. vanilla

1 1/2 T. sugar

3 T.s water

1 – 2 tsp. cornstarch, sifted (for thickness to your taste)

8 oz challah bread, sliced (or your bread of choice!)

4 oz goat cheese

fresh mint to garnish


In a medium-sized saucepan combine the blackberries, blueberries, vanilla, sugar, and water (covered) over a medium low flame. Once simmering and the fruit begins to burst (about 5 minutes) gently mash with a fork or potato masher, then whisk in the cornstarch until well incorporated. Cover once more and simmer over a low flame until needed. Meanwhile, toast the challah bread as desired — I recommend extra crispy. When ready, smear each slice of challah bread with a thick layer of goat cheese, then spoon over with the smashed blackberries. Garnish with mint, then eat!
