Prep & bake time: 25 min
*Ingredients currently available at the farmers’ market
- 1 baguette*, sliced into ¼-inch thick slices

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lay sliced baguette on sheet pan and lightly drizzle with olive oil on both sides. Bake 5-7 minutes or until slices begin to brown around the edges. Remove from oven, flip and bake another 2-3 minutes. Remove crostini from oven and let cool.
Heat olive oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Add garlic and saute until fragrant and just beginning to brown. Add greens ad season lightly with salt and pepper. Saute until greens wilt and become tender. Remove from heat and let cool.
Combine goat cheese, parsley, chives, lemon zest, and salt and pepper in a mixing bowl, mixing until well combined.
Spread each crostini with 1 Tbsp of the herbed goat cheese and then top with wilted greens.
Garnish with more lemon zest. Enjoy!
