These vegan goat cheese crostini topped with roasted cherry tomatoes, fresh basil and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar are a perfect make ahead appetizer or snack. The rich creaminess of the cheese pairs wonderfully with the bright acidity of the tomatoes.


Units Scale

  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 4 Tbs olive oil, divided
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 1 baguette
  • 4-5 oz spreadable vegan cheese (like this vegan goat cheese or vegan cream cheese), at room temperature

  3. Transfer to a bowl and allow to cool.
  4. Slice the baguette on the diagonal into 1/2" thick pieces.  
  5. Brush them with the remaining 2 Tbs of olive oil and place on a baking sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 7-8 minutes until they start to get toasted.
