Crostini with White Beans

Excellent as an inexpensive appetizer or with soup.

Crostini is usually made with italian bread but you can use regular white bread cut thick or even split rolls. Best to use day-old bread rather than perfectly fresh. Brush it with olive oil and toast it in the oven. Then top it with a spread made of:

2 cloves garlic sauteed in 2 T olive oil
sage, marjoram,
red pepper, salt, and black pepper to taste
pureed with 1 can white beans

You can add fresh tomatoes to it too. This is also good in salad wraps with vinegar and oil dressing and mozzarella or parmesan cheese.

  1. I used a chicken bouillon cube in place of the salt and I loved it.
