crostini appetizers on a plate with sliced bread

Garlic and Black Radish Crostinis

These amazing little crostinis start with fresh baguette slices, topped with a dollop of homemade garlic mayo and cream cheese spread, and finished with a stack of spicy black radishes and garlic chives. Seriously, I dare you to eat just one!

  • 1 large french baguette

Regular Dip

  • 1/2 cup spring onions or chives
  • 1/2 cup garlic mayo
  • 1/2 cup whipped cream cheese

Vegan dip version

  • 1/2 cup spring onions or chives
  • 1/2 cup garlic mayo made with veganaise
  • 1/2 cup Tofutti better than cream cheese softened


  1. Chop green onions and thinly slice black radishes, cutting larger slices into halves.
  2. Pick either the regular or vegan version of the dip. Mix green onion, cream cheese and garlic mayo in a bowl until creamy.

  3. Slice baguette into approx 20, 1.5-inch slices. By turning it upside down, you can cut through slices without having the bread tear apart. I also recommend using a bread knife like this SERRATED BREAD KNIFE. If toasting, place in a preheated oven of 400 until golden brown and toasted, typically less than 10 minutes. If serving fresh, skip oven step.

  4. Add 1-2 tbsp garlic dip on crostinis, and top with one to two pieces black radish.
  5. Top with garlic chives and fresh cracked black pepper.

Recipe Notes

This can easily be made vegan! Just change out one or two ingredients and impress you dairy-free friends without compromising taste.

If you are running out of time, or run into a baguette emergency (totally happened to me! you can also make this into a platter, keeping all parts separate until people assemble them. See picture in post for details.
