Grape Tomatoes Naan Crostini Drizzled with Balsamic Glaze ~ Day 157

Our local farmer's market is filled with all kinds of colorful tomatoes this time of the year.  Among them are these tiny, sweet and juicy  grape tomatoes, one my favorite kind, which cost less than a dollar a pound.  Apart from snacking,  I used the tomatoes to make these refreshing and flavorful crostini.  

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 2 minutes
Serves: 4

  • Naan (Plain or Garlic) - 4
  • Pesto sauce - 4 tbsp
  • Grape tomatoes - 2 cups, halved
  • Fresh basil - 4 tbsp, thinly chopped
  • Salt and pepper - to taste
  • Extra virgin olive oil - 2 tbsp
  • Shredded parmesan cheese - 1/2 cup
  • Balsamic glaze (store bought) - for drizzling 

  1. Brush the naans with olive oil and place them on a cookie sheet and broil until lightly golden and crispy on both sides, about 2 minutes.
  2. Combine the grape tomatoes, basil, olive oil, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl.  Set aside.
  3. Once the naans are out of the oven, spread pesto sauce all over the nanns.
  4. Spoon some grape tomato mixture on the naans.  Sprinkle parmesan cheese.  Finally, drizzle some balsamic glaze on top.
  5. Cut into slices and serve.
