Crostini With Sun-Dried Tomatoes



  • 6 sun-dried tomato halves
  • 1/3 cup roasted red peppers (about 2 peppers)
  • 4 roasted garlic cloves, chopped or mashed
  • 1 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh basil
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 baguette or Italian loaf, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices


  • Pour boiling water over the sun-dried tomatoes and set aside until softened, about 30 minutes.
  • Pour off the water (it can be saved and used in place of vegetable stock in other recipes) and coarsely chop the tomatoes.
  • Chop the roasted red peppers and add to the tomatoes, along with the garlic, basil, salt, and pepper. Let stand 30 minutes.
  • Place the bread on a baking sheet and toast in an oven heated to 350°F until the outside is crisp—10 to 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and cool slightly, then spread each piece with the tomato mixture.
