Need a bruschetta topping that involves mint...

Trying to plan a mixed bruschetta platter but I have Friday brain freeze and need help!

By request, I am doing 1 traditional tomato-basil, so I don't want to do anything too similar like mint-tomato.

Thanks for your help!

  1. Do you have access to fresh peas?

      maybe, I'd have to check the farmer's market tomorrow...peas and mint would be good

        Or even frozen, defrosted, peas with mint make a nice topping.
        Goat cheese, fig and mint.
        Grilled eggplant puree with mint.
        Brie, pear and topped with a mint chiffonade.
        Fava bean puree with onion, chives and mint.

      2. mint, cucumber, cumin, garlic, a little greek yogurt binder?

        1. Mushrooms go great with mint. I would finely chop mushrooms, saute with garlic, olive oil, onions if you like, maybe some wine, then add some soaked and minced dry porcini for depth of flavor, and at the end chopped mint. Something like that.

          1. I love this selection (although called crostini).

            1. Navy beans with garlic and mint. A little finely chopped red onion gives it a some bite and texture. In the pic I have it next to a mushroom topping, but you get the idea.
