  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1 orange bell pepper

Marinade ingredients

For the crostini

  • ½ to ¾ large french baguette
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper

To assemble

  • 7.75 ounces spreadable goats cheese (220g)

To garnish

  • 3 to 4 fresh basil leaves
  • freshly ground black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 180ºc / 355ºf
  • Place the bell peppers whole onto a baking sheet and put in the pre heated oven for 20 - 30 minutes until the skin has started to blacken and the peppers are soft (but not mush!)
  • Take the peppers out of the oven and let them cool so you can handle them.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the marinade ingredients and set to one side.
  • Once the peppers are cool, remove the stalks, seeds and any juices - be careful as the juice inside can be super hot! And peel off the skin.
  • Cut the bell pepper into thin slices, and cut any long pieces in half.
  • Add the bell pepper strips to the marinade and mix well.  Cover and put in the fridge for at least 30 mins - up to 6 hours
  • Slice the bread diagonally into thin slices - around 1cm thickness.  Put on a baking tray and drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Put in the heated oven (180ºc / 355ºf) for 5 minutes until they have toasted. 
  • When ready to assemble, spread about a tablespoon of goats cheese on each toast, and top with 4 to 5 marinated pepper strips. 
  • Sprinkle over a little black pepper and garnish with torn basil leaves.
