‘Cheese’ and Cherry Preserve Canapés

Serves 6

200 g stoned cherries, roughly chopped
1 large onion, sliced
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
5 tbsp cane sugar
1/2 tsp salt
200 g melty vegan cheese, finely sliced
6 large slices bread

Heat the olive oil in a saucepan and saute the onion and the cherries. Add the vinegar, sugar and salt. Season with pepper to taste. Allow to reduce and cook over medium heat for about 15 minutes. Arrange the slices of cheese on the bread. Grill for about 5 minutes to toast the bread and to melt the ‘cheese’. Top with the cherry preserve and serve. A sure way to trick the non-initiated into thinking they are eating cheese!
