Roasted Strawberries with Balsamic and Vanilla Bean Paste

Roasted Balsamic and Vanilla Strawberries

Written by Becky

Our last SLCmixer was a prohibition style mixology class with Loren from Bar X. And although cocktails where the highlight and purpose of the evening I still pondered what foods to serve in this tiny speakeasy.  As folks chatted and sipped I didn’t want them go hungry. With the donations of a few local food providers:  Breadspong and Some Guys Special Sauce, our guests were served thick slices of artisan bread by Breadsong, still warm from the oven, and were also able to lather on their selection of either garlic lime aoli or roasted strawberries.

Roasted Strawberries are terribly easy to make and rewarding for a simple a delicious appetizer. You can serve them on a naked slice of toast or over a layer of creamy goat cheese on toast. Really their uses are limitless.. over salad, over grains, on oats, over cake…

Our evening was complete with cocktails, carbs, and no shortage of special sauces.

  1. I’d never heard of roasted strawberries before, and now they seem to be popping up all over the place! I’ve got to give them a try, they sound amazing.

  2. I saved this for later, and just made it this morning! Delish for breakfast with honeyed yoghurt, but even better is the granita I made with the rest of the batch. Thanks for the post and inspiring me to make some yummy treats!

    • I found it at Williams Sonoma but it’s basically an easier way of getting vanilla bean into a recipe. You can easily substitute it for scraping the vanilla bean seeds from a vanilla bean. Hope that helps!
