1) In a food processor, grind basil, pine nuts and garlic in a food
processor until finely chopped. Add olive oil and salt and process 10
to 15 seconds, or until oil is incorporated.
2) Preheat oven to broil and prepare a baking sheet by either
lightly greasing with oil or lining with aluminum foil.
3) Slice baguette into 1” slices. Place in a single layer on
prepared baking sheet and spread approximately 1 teaspoon pesto on
each slice. Next, top each with approximately 1 to 2 teaspoons tomato
sauce, then sprinkle with vegan cheese. Broil for 5 to 10 minutes or
until vegan cheese has melted. Remove from oven and allow to cool
slightly before consuming.
