Toasted baguette slices topped with a rich tomato basil sauce


  • 1 ½ - 2 lbs (3 cups) tomatoes
  • ⅓ cup olive oil, or more to taste
  • ⅛ cup fresh basil or ½ tbsp dried basil, or more to taste
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 green onions
  • 2 x 24-inch whole-grain baguettes


  • Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  • Wash the tomatoes and dice into uniform pieces. Mince the garlic, finely chop the green onion, and cut the basil leaves (if using fresh basil).
  • Mix the tomatoes with the oil, basil, garlic, and green onion.
  • Cut each baguette in half lengthwise and then cut each half into 6 equal portions (for a total of 24 slices).
  • Place the baguette pieces on the baking tray and toast the cut surfaces in oven until lightly browned (2-4 minutes).
  • Cover each baguette piece with some of the tomato mixture. Lightly press down with a spoon to hold in place.
