Crostini with Herb and Feta creme and Roasted Heirloom Tomatoes

These nibbles are a a favourite in a crowd. Perfect for entertaining and dinner party finger food. 

What is a Crostini? It is essentially a small piece of bread, toasted or fried, served with a topping as a canapĂ© or starter. 

Ingredients

  • 1 french bread stick
  • 1 packet baby heirloom tomatoes
  • 1 slab feta cheese
  • 3 Tbsp ricotta cheese
  • fresh herbs
  • pepper and salt
  • olive oil 

Method

Thinly slice the bread stick and lay out on a baking tray.

Drizzle bread with a little olive oil and salt.

Toast in the oven on 150C for 8-10mins or until crisp. - leave aside.

On another tray, lay tomatoes down with a generous drizzle of olive oil, pepper and salt. 

Using the hot oven, slow roast on 140C for 15-20 mins or until blistered. - leave aside to cool. 

In a food processor, place - feta, herbs, pepper and salt and a drizzle of olive oil. Blend until smooth and creamy. 

Assembly:

Using a butter knife, scrape some feta creme onto the crostini leaving a slight indent, place a roasted tomato on top sitting it in the indent so it doesn't slide off the crostini. 

Serve.

I have also garnished with wild rocket or fresh basil which adds a pop of colour. 

Enjoy!
