Bread (Baguette or something similar. Also a fan of sourdough!)
Note: I didn't add amounts to the peaches, bread and cream cheese because you can make as many as you'd like! Light a gas grill to medium heat. Cut the peaches in half and take out the pit. Option: you can brush the peaches with a healthier oil like avocado oil or olive oil, but you don't have to if you'd like to keep it oil free.
Grill the peaches flat side down until they're tender and you can see grill marks - about 5 minutes. You can flip them and grill on the skin side if you like. This side only needs a couple of minutes. Take the peaches off the grill and set aside until they've cooled enough to slice. If you would like your bread toasted do that now! I do like it a little toasted, but either way is good.
Start to build the crostini by slicing your bread and spreading cream cheese on each slice. Then, add the arugula and top with the sliced peaches. Lastly, drizzle the balsamic reduction over each slice. Serve immediately and enjoy!
Add 2 cups of balsamic vinegar to a pot over medium heat and bring to a boil. Once the vinegar is boiling, give it a stir. Keep an eye on it, stirring occasionally until it starts to thicken up. Once it starts to thicken up, turn the heat down to low. Once it's to your desired consistency, remove from heat. If you heat too long, it will become too thick to drizzle.
You can skip the balsamic reduction step if you buy it pre-made at the grocery store.
I used Kite Hill's plain, dairy-free cream cheese, which is so good in my opinion. Miyokos Creamery is another good brand with dairy-free cream cheese.
You can use other leafy greens if you're not a fan of arugula. Sprouts would also be good!
You can use other fruit besides peaches. We are also big fans of using pears!
