How to make vegetarian cheesy artichoke toasts

Print this recipe
There are few things I love more than an appetizer that I can justify eating for dinner. The recipe below is perfect. When I want to feel really good about myself, I serve it with a pureed vegetable soup (zucchini, asparagus or broccoli). Either way, I consider it a healthy and very satisfying meal.
I like to slice the baguette on the diagonal so I can get more surface area on each slice. I think it looks especially nice, too. If you are serving this as a party app, garnish the slices with minced parsley or ribbons of fresh basil.
