Preparation Time

20 Min.

Cook Time

10 Min.


1 pc red bell pepper
1 pc yellow bell pepper
6 pc small to medium-sized mushrooms
1 pc small courgettes
6 pc small vine tomatoes
1 pc red onion
2 pc cloves of garlic
3 tbs oliv oil
1 pinch Salt (rock salt or Himalayan salt or sea salt)
some Pepper (freshly ground from the pepper mill)
some Mediterranean herbs (rosmary, thyme, basil)
8-12 slices Baguette or Ciabatta (or other small bread roasted)
2 tbs oliv oil
1 pc clove of garlic


Preheat the oven to 220°C.

Clean the vegetables and cut into a suitable size. It should be able to cook in the oven evenly/simultaneously. On the one hand, the vegetables must be small enough to fit as a crostini topping. On the other hand, the vegetables should not be too small to burn in the oven.
Leave the garlic cloves whole so that you can fish them out again later after roasting in the oven.

Place the vegetables in a suitable roaster or baking tray. Season and sprinkle with olive oil in a thin stream. Bake for about 20 minutes, depending on the size of the vegetables.

Prepare crostini: Place on a baking tray, if possible on baking paper, baguette or ciabatta slices as thick as a finger. Sprinkle them lightly with oil or brush them with a brush. Season lightly with salt and pepper.

Change the oven layout: vegetables out, crostini in. Roast the bread slices for 8-10 minutes.

After roasting, rub the bread slices with a fresh clove of garlic. Then cover with the vegetables. If the Mediterranean oven vegetables are still too coarse, simply cut them a little smaller to fit.

Off with the vegan party slices on the plate. Garnish with herbs and serve cold. The guests applaud 😉
