This delicious meat-free antipasti, taken from Jamie Oliver's website is a favourite of ours, so why not wow your guests at your next dinner party. (Recipe can also be viewed on the Keep Close to the Plant Facebook page.)
• 8 slices of ciabatta bread
• 1 clove of garlic
• extra virgin olive oil
• 2 balls of buffalo mozzarella
• sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
• 1 red chili, deseeded and finely sliced
• a small handful of fresh basil leaves
• zest of 1 lemon
Heat a griddle pan until it’s really smoking hot, then griddle each slice of ciabatta for a couple of minutes on each side until they are nicely charred.
Cut the garlic clove in half, rub each ciabatta slice with garlic and drizzle with a little olive oil. Tear the mozzarella evenly over the 8 crostini. Season well with salt and pepper, sprinkle over the sliced chili and basil leaves and grate over the lemon zest. Finish with another drizzle of olive oil.
