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

Arrange tomatoes cut side up in an 8-inch (2 L) square glass baking dish; evenly scatter garlic throughout. Drizzle 2 tbsp (25 mL) of reserved artichoke oil over top; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast in centre of oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until tomatoes are soft but not falling apart. Let cool to room temperature.

4

Mix artichokes and basil gently into roasted tomatoes. Spoon mixture onto crostini; top with shaved cheese.
