Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place halved tomatoes on top. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast for 40-45 minutes, or until tomatoes are juicy and just starting to golden.
  2. While the tomatoes are roasted, chop your eggplant, zucchini, and red pepper into 1-inch cubes. Spread over a large baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and roast in the same oven for 30 minutes.
  3. Time to make your sauce! Place roasted tomatoes into a high speed blender with 2 garlic cloves, salt, pepper, and fresh basil leaves. Purée until smooth.
  4. Toast bread of choice, then top each slice with a large spoonful (or two) of roasted tomato sauce. Pile on lots of roasted vegetables and sprinkle with freshly chopped basil.
