Harissa, a fiery North African seasoning paste based on chiles and spices, gives these simple but exciting appetizers their kick. If you're doubling or tripling the recipe for a party, you can set out the toppings and the grilled toasts brushed with olive oil to let your guests build their own.
1 medium zucchini
3 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper
About 2 tbsp. harissa paste
10 baguette slices, brushed with olive oil and grilled
How to Make It
Heat grill to high. Slice zucchini lengthwise and grill, turning once, until grill marks appear, about 4 minutes. Let cool, then chop. In a bowl, combine zucchini with feta and oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Spread about 1/2 tsp. prepared harissa on each baguette toast and top each with about 1 tbsp. zucchini mixture.
