About this recipe: These crostini are a nice alternative to bruschetta and are elegant, yet fantastically simple to prepare. Be sure to make extra of these, as they definitely disappear rather quickly.


Serves: 8 

  • 1 baguette, cut into diagonal 1cm slices
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, halved
  • 6 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1 bunch fresh basil, julienned
  • 450g fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced

  1. Preheat the grill. Brush the slices of bread lightly with olive oil, and place on a baking tray. Toast under the grill for about 3 minutes. Watch carefully. Rub each crostini with a garlic clove for flavour.
  2. Place the tomatoes into a medium bowl, and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Place the crostini on a serving tray. Top each one with a slice of mozzarella cheese, cover with a spoonful of tomatoes, and garnish with fresh basil.
