Ingredients

  • 1 bunch Asparagus trimmed
  • 1 pint Grape Tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt and pepper
  • 3/4 cup herb and garlic cream cheese softened
  • 2 tbsp Basil chopped, fresh

Crostini

  • 1 baguette sliced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic halved

Instructions

  • Crostini: Brush baguette slices with oil and place on preheated greased grill over medium heat. Grill, turning once for about 4 minutes or until light golden on both sides. Remove to a platter. When cool enough to handle, rub one side of crostini with garlic; set aside.
  • Toss asparagus with 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Place tomatoes into a large piece of foil and toss with remaining oil, salt and pepper. Place both on grill, turning asparagus occasionally for 7 minutes or until golden and tomatoes have softened. Remove asparagus to cutting board and cut into thirds.
  • Spread crostini with cream cheese. Top with grilled asparagus and tomatoes. Sprinkle each with basil before serving.
