  • These goat’s cheese crostinis are similar to bruschetta, but made with white bread instead of ciabatta. Perfect as a classy appetizer for a dinner party.

    Ingredients

    • 1 small thin baguette, cut into 12 thin slices
    • 1 clove garlic, halved
    • 3 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
    • 1 ripe avocado, peeled, stoned and diced
    • 100g (31/22 oz) Goat’s Cheese log, rind removed and crumbled (available from deli counter)
    • Juice 1 small lemon
    • 1 tbsp chopped basil, plus 12 small sprigs to garnish
    • 1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
    • Salt and ground black pepper

    Method

    • Preheat oven to 180°C/gas mark 4/160°C fan oven. Rub one side of each bread slice with garlic and brush each with a little extra virgin olive oil. Put onto a baking tray and bake in the oven for 10 mins until golden. Leave to go cold.

    • Meanwhile, mash the avocado with nearly all the goat’s cheese. Then fold in the remaining extra virgin olive oil and goats cheese, lemon juice, basil and onion. Season to taste.

    • Top each crostini with a mound of the avocado mixture and garnish with a sprig of basil.
