I've never met a crostini I didn't like. Place anything on a small piece of thinly sliced, toasted baguette and I will gobble it up. When this recipe for zucchini crostini arrived in my inbox thanks to a wonderfully informative food newsletter called Tasting Table, I was super excited — more so than I would be if it was any old crostini recipe.
You see, it's really fun to say the words "zucchini crostini." Try it. Say them out loud. I bet you can't help but smile, right? Since funny little things — like rhyming words that describe one of my favorite hors d'oeuvres — make me extremely happy, I knew I would not be disappointed by this recipe. I printed it on the spot and let me tell you: it's amazing!
It's simple to throw together at the last minute (it was a starter at one of my infamous impromptu dinner parties) and downright delicious. It's vegetarian-friendly and although the ingredients are basic, the flavor is rich and complex. I highly recommend you make it, so here's the recipe.
