White Bean Crostini
For the White Bean Spread:
Cannelini or Northern Beans
salt and fresh pepper
" piece of baguette
(4 oz, sliced into 1/4" pieces)
olive oil spray
extra thyme for garnish
Cut the bread into 1/4" thin slices.
You can toast these in the oven with a little olive oil spray at 400° turning once until toasted or grill them. I used my George Forman grill to toast them with a light spray of olive oil.
Once the bread is toasted, lightly rub it with a garlic clove cut in half. Now your bread is ready to top.
Pureé in a small blender or magic bullet all the ingredients for the white bean spread. If it's too dry you can add a little more water.
Top each piece with 2 tsp of white bean puree and garnish with fresh thyme.
Drizzle with a touch of balsamic right before serving.
Makes 34 pieces.
