If you caught final week’s put up about my CSA field ideas, you may acknowledge a few of these elements right here on this recipe. What I like most about my “surprise” Farmhouse field is that it conjures up me to provide you with taste mixtures that I’d not have considered in any other case. Blueberries and fennel?? Yes, it really works!
The saying is true – what grows collectively goes collectively. These had been the primary blueberries of the season and I knew I wished to make a easy recipe to actually spotlight them.
This flatbread is really easy to make and I feel it’d be such an surprising appetizer or facet dish for Mother’s Day brunch this weekend.
I baked the flatbread simply lengthy sufficient for the fennel to melt and for the blueberries to change into juicy. For coloration and somewhat crunch, I topped these with thinly sliced pink radishes which had been hiding within the backside of my Farmhouse field. If you don’t love radishes, don’t be scared – the flavour doesn’t overwhelm they usually add an exquisite freshness to the recipe.
