Crostini are dainty starters made of crisped bread topped with yummy ingredients.
Here, a strongly flavoured mixture of roasted garlic mashed with sea salt is used to give the crostini a succulent mouth-feel and irresistible flavour.
Sea salt has a way of boosting the flavour of any dish it is added to, and its magic plays out effectively in the Roasted Garlic Crostini too.
As the crostini bakes in the oven with the roasted garlic topping, it gives out such a fabulous aroma that nobody can control themselves from popping a piece into their mouth as soon as it is done!
