Undeniably, living a plant-based life doesn’t mean that you are limited. You have access to more than a plate of salad greens. Making easy snacks and appetizers like bruschetta, keep the tastebuds hopping! Surprisingly, I am always finding new ways to add plants to my plate. It’s fun to mix things up and adding peaches is a great example of that.

This bruschetta recipe calls for peaches that are fresh, in a jar or can. If you are lucky enough to grab some late summer peaches from the market, go ahead and do it! However, if you can’t find them, you can use the ones you already have in your kitchen cabinet or pantry.
