Mint, Chive Flower and Feta Bruschetta

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup fresh chive blossoms
  • 1 French or Sourdough baguette
  • 1/2 pound feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 1/2 cup minced chives
  • 2-4 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and freshly-ground pepper
Chive flowers are the cutest. Little purple pompoms of onion flavor. Sure, if the chives aren’t blooming, you can use the same amount of the stems- but chives are abloom right now, and this bruschetta is a strikingly beautiful way to highlight their presence in the landscape and bring them into the kitchen. Paired with cool mint and creamy feta, their pungent, yet graceful allium essence is a welcome and wonderful bit of kitchen whimsy.


Preheat the oven to 325 °F. 
While the oven is heating, pull apart the chive blossoms, removing the central stem and plucking the tiny purple florets.
