Hispanic Heritage Month Recipes

Happy Hispanic Heritage Month! Each year, from September 15 to October 15 Americans celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month by sharing the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America. 2021 was especially significant because it was the 200th anniversary of Costa Rican Independence from Spain. Here are a few traditional & unique Latin American recipes you may want to add to your menu: 

Strawberry & Cheese Pumpernickel Toast

Though we grow our own strawberries every year, it is one of our favorite fruits so it's always nice to supplement our bounty. This weekend we went Strawberry picking at our favorite local PYO, Battleview Orchards, with my brother. It was a beautiful hot and sunny Saturday morning with clear blue skies, a perfect day for picking. After about an 45 minutes in the rows we ended up with about 12 lbs of bright red sweet ripe juicy strawberries. More than enough to share with family and for the myriad of recipes I have mentally planned. 

So it only seemed right to start our Sunday brunch with a quick and easy strawberry recipe!

Here's the recipe for Strawberry & Cheese Pumpernickel Toast:
Serves 4
8 slices, Pumpernickel Bread
2 cups Sliced Strawberries
8 oz. Neufchâtel Cheese*

*Or Cream Cheese

1. Lightly Toast the Bread and let it cool to room temperature.
2. Spread a thin coating of cheese on the cooled toast, then place the sliced strawberries on the cheese.

Enjoy! :)
