One of my favorite things to do is put together a quick, delicious appetizer and this one is definitely worth sharing! I love fresh basil and can’t get enough of this yummy, easy-to-make appetizer.

Serves: 1

Vegan, Gluten Free


1 slice gluten free bread

Vegan cream cheese (make sure there are no hydrogenated oils in the ingredients)

1 small tomato (just a few slices will do)

Fresh basil leaves

Dash of olive oil or grapeseed oil

Small sprinkle of salt and pepper


Spread a thin layer of vegan cream cheese on the bread. Cover the slice of bread with fresh basil leaves. Top with thin slices of tomato and finish with a drizzle of oil and a small touch of salt and pepper. Enjoy!
