Cannellini Bean & Caper Crostini

This recipe for Cannellini Bean & Caper Crostini is one of my favorites. You can get the complete recipe from Martha Stewart's website. This recipe is perfect for a party (easy to make ahead the crostini and the topping then assemble last minute) or just serve with a salad for a light lunch. The combination of the beans, capers, onions, olive oil and white wine vinegar is just perfect and the recipe is easily doubled. I highly recommend this one.

If you've never made crostini before, it's very easy - just thinly slice a baguette (a day old baguette works wonderfully), brush both sides lightly with olive oil and sprinkle a little salt and pepper on each slice. Arrange the slices on a sheet pan and bake at 375 until lightly golden/toasted. The crostini is delicious on its own, with a salad, topped with a bit of goat cheese and tomato...or with this Cannellini Bean & Caper mixture!

mise en place: beans, capers, red onion, olive oil, white wine vinegar, salt and pepper - easy!

1/4 of the onion is finely diced and then everything is mixed together

as you mix, crush the beans a little to create a cremier sauce

cooling my freshly made crostini - yum!

I served this at a party and let guests make their own

so delicious!

Bye for now...
