Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 8 - 12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pint fresh strawberries about 4 cups hulled and thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 french baguette cut into ½ inch slices
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 ounces vegan "cream cheese" or vegan "brie"
  • handful of fresh basil leaves torn

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 C) and line a baking tray with foil, then brush with olive oil. Lay strawberries out on pan in an even layer and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until berries are soft, dark, and look slightly shriveled.
  2. While berries are in oven, line a separate pan with parchment or foil and brush baguette slices with oil. Place on pan and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Bake for 6 - 8 minutes until edges are lightly toasted.
  3. If using "brie", cut into thin slices and place on top of each crostini while still warm or if using cream cheese spread with a knife. Then top with berries and basil and serve.
