Zucchini and yellow pepper sautéed with a combination of spices and herbs forms a great topping for French bread coated with Mayo spread comprising mayonnaise, parsley and chilli sauce.

The interplay of flavours is fantastic but the blend of textures is even more exhilarating, with crisp bread, crunchy veggies and a smooth spread clamoring for attention in each bite of the Zucchini and Yellow Pepper Toast.

For the Topping

  1. Heat the olive oil in a broad non-stick pan, add the garlic and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds till fragrant.If you don't have olive oil, you can even use sunflower oil or any regular cooking oil. 
  2. Add the zucchini to the pan. This zucchini is not peeled and has been thinly sliced.
  3. Add the thinly sliced yellow capsicum as well. You can even use the other coloured capsicums. 
  4. Sauté them on a medium flame for 2 minutes till slightly cooked but still crunchy.
  5. Then add the chilli flakes for a spicy taste.
  6. Also add oregano and salt, which gives a herby taste to the veggies. Fresh oregano can be used as well. If you are using fresh oregano, use it in double the quantity. 
  7. Mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 minute, while stirring occasionally. 
  8. Divide the topping into 8 equal portions and keep aside.

For the Mayo Spread

  1. Put the mayonnaise in a deep bowl. We have used regular eggless mayonnaise but to mix it up you can use garlic mayonnaise as well. Here is the detailed recipe of Easy Homemade Eggless Mayonnaise. 
  2. To it, add the finely chopped parsley leaves. In case you do not have parsley, you can replace it with coriander.
  3. Add the chilli sauce and salt, and mix well with a spoon to form a spread. Keep aside. For a sweeter spread, add tomato ketchup instead. 

For the Bread Slices

  1. Grease the baking tray with 1/2 tsp of melted butter. This is to prevent the bread from sticking to the tray.
  2. Arrange the bread slices on the greased baking tray.
  3. Brush all the bread slices with melted butter. This will give a superb taste to them when toasted. 
  4. Bake the bread in a pre-heated oven at 200°C (400°F) for 5 to 7 minutes or till they are crisp.

How to Proceed for the Toast

  1. Spread the mayo equally on all bread slices. Creamy mayonnaise and a crispy toast go great together! 
  2. Then spread 1 portion of the topping evenly over each bread slice.
  3. Serve zucchini yellow pepper toast immediately.
