Chevre, Tomato and Basil Crostini

Chevre, Tomato and Basil Crostini

Makes 4 servings


Chevre is more French than Italian, but its delicious flavor and lower fat content take it across culinary borders. Garden fresh tomatoes and basil make these crostini irresistible.

  • 1 -1/2 ounces chevre (goat cheese)
  • 4 ounces crusty Italian bread, cut into eight 1/2-ounce slices and toasted
  • 4 small plum tomatoes, each cut into 4 slices
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 8 fresh basil leaves

Spread the chevre evenly over the bread slices; lay 2 slices of the tomato, slightly overlapping if necessary, over each. Sprinkle evenly with salt and pepper and top each with a basil leaf. Serve at room temperature.

Serving (2 slices) provides:
1/2 Vegetable, 1/2 Protein, 1 Bread
