Cooking Instructions

1

Preheat oven to 400ºF (200ºC).

2

Cut baguette into 24 slices on a slight diagonal, each slice about 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick. Save remaining baguette for another use. Arrange slices on rimmed baking sheet; brush both sides with 3 tbsp (45 mL) of reserved oil. Bake in top third of oven until crisp, about 12 to 15 minutes, turning after 8 minutes. Transfer to rack to cool.

3

Combine eggplant, peppers, onion, olives, mint, parsley, salt and black pepper in medium bowl.

4

Spread goat cheese on crostini; top with a spoonful of eggplant mixture. Garnish with chopped fresh mint, if desired.
