Cannellini Crostini
85 mins (prep 25, cooking 60)
10 ingredients
1 servings
This is my version of crostini served at my favorite Mediterranean/Middle Eastern restaurant in town. What I noticed about the restaurant's version of crostini was the absence of an overly aggressive garlic flavor. So, I assumed they used roasted garlic as I've indicated in the recipe. It is strongly recommended for best results as well that you use the finest quality French baguette in this recipe-either homemade or bought from an established artisan bakery. Canned beans are certainly acceptable to substitute, although you'll need to be careful as canned beans have added sodium. Adapted from Smooth and creamy!
