Ingredients for Roasted Pepper Crostini:

Sliced baguette, basil, olive oil, balsamico, garlic, and sweet peppers
  • Bread

  • Garlic
  • Olive oil
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Basil
  • Salt and pepper to season

For this one, you only need a few ingredients! Regarding the bread, I like to use either a French baguette or a ciabatta. Today, I went with a whole wheat baguette, but feel free to use any bread you like. Some fresh sweet peppers, garlic, a flavourful extra-virgin olive oil, a sip of balsamic vinegar, and some fresh basil bring all the delicious taste. A vegan cream cheese substitute can make a nice additions to these crostini!

How to make Roasted Pepper Crostini:

Making these roasted pepper crostini is super straightforward. Firstly, I like to take care of roasting the peppers, as this will take the longest. In the meantime, we can prepare the bread.

Preheat your peppers to 180° Celsius (360° Fahrenheit). Wash the sweet peppers, and put them in the oven until their skin starts to char. Roast the garlic together with the peppers for a few minutes, but take it out of the oven before burning. In the meantime, cut up your bread into little appetiser-sized slices. Brush the bread gently with olive oil, and toast the slices. You can use a pan or a grill for this.

Turn the peppers every few minutes until they have charred on each side. Once they have developed a good colour, take them out of the oven. Add them to a pot or heat-resistant bowl, and cover them so they can steam and rest. After that, their peels will come off super easily.

Allow the peppers rest for at least 10 minutes before carefully removing the skin. They will still be hot, so be careful not to burn yourself. Next, slice them open, and discard all the seeds and the stem.

Wash the basil, and cut up a handful of leaves. Finely mince or mash the roasted garlic and cut the sweet peppers. I opted for smaller pieces, but one large slice of roasted pepper can be fantastic as well. Mix with the basil, and add balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and salt and pepper to your liking.

Load each crostini with a generous amount of the sweet pepper mix. You can garnish each with some more basil if you like.
