What I like most about crostini is that it is quick and easy to make. They can be just toasted with light olive oil and top off with different ingredients we may have lying around in our refrigerator. A perfect way to also use leftover ingredients without creating waste! Yes!

What To Do With Crostini

These crostini pair perfectly with our butternut & acorn squash soup. To enjoy them as a snack try dipping them in our Tahini Garlic Nut Spread or Tzatziki Sauce.
