  1. Make the crostini: Turn the oven to broil on high.
  2. Trim off the ends of the multi-grain bread, then slice crosswise into 12 even pieces. Arrange the bread slices on a baking sheet in a single layer and brush on both sides with the olive oil.
  3. Broil on each side for 2–5 minutes, until golden brown, watching closely to make sure the bread doesn’t burn. Remove from the oven and let cool.
  4. Make the heirloom tomato topping: Finely dice the red and yellow tomatoes and place in a medium bowl. Add the olive oil, pepper, and sliced basil. Mix well. Let sit for 5–10 minutes.
  5. Spoon the tomato mixture onto 4 of the crostini, then garnish with the Parmesan cheese, flaky sea salt, more pepper, and the whole basil leaves.
  6. Enjoy!
