Cook’s tip!

The grated courgettes are salted and squeezed so that the crostini stays crisp. Make sure to include step one, as courgettes have high water content, and your bread will become moist and soggy.

There is a freshness to this crostini vegan recipe that makes them light and perfect for a starter. The mint adds freshness, but if you do not like mint, you could substitute the mint with basil or dill.

Enjoy our fresh and tasty quick and easy courgette crostini with a sprinkle of black pepper to serve.
