Light Sweet & Savoury Brunch Board
After the holidays it seems that we are all looking for some relief from the last month of desserts, big meals, sweets and treats. We all need some lighter options -that are just as exciting!
This sweet and savoury brunch board fits the bill and was created to be a grazing station that can be served at breakfast, brunch, lunch or for those late-night cravings! Recreate the full spread or pick from the various recipes we used here to enjoy at any time!
First off, we begin with our sweet Overnight Attiki Honey Muesli. A power-packed breakfast that starts with a base of wholesome oats and chia seeds. Here we have topped it with toasted almonds, sweet, dried apricots, fresh raspberries, and a healthy drizzle of pure, raw, Greek Attiki honey. Don’t miss this step! Attiki honey gives a deep flavour which is indicative of the ancient flora and lush areas of Greece from which it is derived. This version is made with almond milk but use any type of dairy or non-dairy version to your taste!
All it needs is time in the fridge overnight to allow for the oats and chia seeds to plump and it is ready to enjoy. Prep it and forget it – a great make-ahead option!
Next, we move onto the savoury with this creamy Yogurt & Feta Slather. It couldn’t be simpler to put together by combining Greek yogurt, with creamy, salty Krinos Greek imported PDO feta. Finish with sun-dried tomatoes, basil and healthy helping of Krinos Kalamata Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Grab a crostini, cracker or veggie and dip, slather, and scoop at your leisure. We recommend doubling this recipe, as it won’t last long!
Both recipes are fantastic as part of a spread or enjoyed on their own, but to truly make this a grazing board, we need to add some additional accoutrements. Attiki Honey is used throughout, one of favourite ways to enjoy it is with our Mini Vlahotiri wheel topped with sliced pear and toasted almonds. This cheese was selected as it pairs beautifully with fruit, nuts and honey as well as the sliced Kefalograviera, also used here. We have also added some Artisan-Grec pistachio halva, a sweet, creamy treat that works very well with cheese and honey.
All that’s left to do is add in your favourite crackers, veggies, crostini and fruits and you have yourself an amazingly easy and stunningly beautiful board to share (or not!) with friends, family and loved ones.
