Roasted Tomato and Garlic Crostini -

In this recipe, I am using roasted garlic as a vegetable on its own! The sweet, tender morsels glisten on top of the bites of perfectly roasted tomatoes and crispy bread.

  • 3 Large Tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 1 Head Garlic
  • 3 Sprigs Fresh Oregano
  • 1 Tbsp. Vegetable oil
  • 1 Tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 Tsp. Salt or to Taste
  • ½ Baguette, sliced thinly


  1. Preheat oven to 425 F (218 C)
  2. Prepare the garlic for roasting: Take the entire head and cut off about ½ an inch off the top, just exposing the cloves. Wrap tightly in aluminum foil.
  3. Combine the tomatoes, oregano, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and salt. Spread in an even layer on a parchment lined baking sheet. Add the aluminum wrapped head of garlic in a corner of the baking sheet.
  4. Just before serving, toast the baguette slices until slightly crisp.
  5. To assemble, place a couple of pieces of roasted tomatoes on each baguette slice and remove the garlic from the aluminum foil and squeeze out some beautiful soft roasted garlic cloves on top.
