Asparagus and vegan cream cheese on crostini

Want a quick and easy nibble to offer at a party? Try this.

asparagus on crostini, vegan

Bread stick/s (see Notes)
Olive oil
Vegan cream cheese (see Notes)
Spring onions, finely chopped
Asparagus, lightly steamed

1. Preheat the oven to 180C/375F.

2. Cut the bread sticks into slices about 3/4 inch thick. Cut them at a slight angle.

3. Brush the bread sticks on both sides with a little olive oil. Bake until light golden, about 10 minutes. Turn halfway through baking.

4. Allow to cool for a couple of minutes and then spread with vegan cream cheese. Sprinkle some spring onions over the top and finish off with slices of asparagus.

5. Serve within a couple of hours.

Notes
If you want to serve the crostini warm, steam the asparagus while the bread is browning in the oven. They are also nice served cold and if served cold, can be made in advance.

The whole Bute Island range of creamy sheese is palm oil free as well as vegan, and is the brand we always use.

The partially baked bread sticks available in most supermarkets work well in this recipe. Most are vegan, but check first. Sainsbury’s and the Co-op label their vegan bread.
