Serves: Not listed

1 Baguette
Ricotta cheese for spreading
OR Chèvre
1 to 3 Tomatoes
1 Sweet potato
1 Yellow squash
1 Eggplant
2 tablespoons Olive oil (plus a bit more for the bread)
1 teaspoon Thyme leaves
1 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Pepper
1 Avocado
1 tablespoon Basil (chopped)
1/2 cup Blueberries

1 Watermelon radish (peeled & thinly sliced)
Sesame seeds (for topping, if desired)
Lemon zest (for topping, if desired)
Balsamic vinegar (for topping, if desired)
Additional cheese (for topping, if desired)

Step by Step Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice the baguette into 1/4 to 1/2 inch ovals. Brush them lightly with olive oil and bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
  2. Slice the tomatoes, sweet potato, squash, and eggplant. Toss each group individually in olive oil, salt, pepper, and thyme leaves. Pour all of them onto a large, parchment lined baking sheet (make sure they're in a single layer, but in different sections). Roast for 25 to 30 minutes (if one section of vegetable finishes, take it out and let the rest finish).
  3. When ready to assemble, top each slice with ricotta or chèvre, then top with vegetables in a rainbow sequence.

  5. You can also add sesame seeds, lemon zest, balsamic vinegar, and/or additional cheese to any slice that you desire.
