Yield: Makes 12 crostini
Prep time: 10 Mins<Br />
Cooking time: 20 Mins<Br />

Ingredients

  • 12 slices baguette
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, cut in half
  • 1 firm eggplant
  • 2 tbsp chopped mint
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 oz (60g) soft goat cheese

Directions
