Caramelized Onion and Apple Crostini
- 1 cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 2 Gala apples, or any variety of apple of your choice, roughly chopped
- 1 tablespoon pine nuts
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1/2 regular or whole grain baguette, cut on a bias into slices and toasted
Place a small saucepan over medium-high heat and add the balsamic vinegar. Bring up to a light simmer and cook for about 6-8 minutes, or until it reduces by about half and thickens up.
While the balsamic vinegar is cooking, place a medium size skillet over medium-high heat and add the EVOO. Add the onion and apples to the pan and cook for about 8-10 minutes, until the mixture starts to brown. Add the pine nuts and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Top the toasted baguette slices with a spoonful of the onion and apple mixture. Drizzle with the reduced balsamic vinegar and serve.
