Tuscan White Bean Crostini is a simple and delicious appetizer perfect for holiday parties and family get togethers. This post is sponsored by Carapelli.
Toasted bread dipped in olive oil is one of our very favorite things to snack on. After a day of Christmas shopping I was looking for something a little more substantial. I added some olive oil, garlic, red onion and a can of cannellini beans to a skillet while I toasted a baguette. I topped the toasted bread with the beans and drizzled them with a little more olive oil and some fresh rosemary.
The husband gave it 5 stars and even Emmet loved it. I considered that a big win. This would make such a great party appetizer and I am going to making this often. I seriously loved it.
The red onions add a bit of sweetness to the savory garlic and rosemary. Best flavor combination ever. Crunchy bread, creamy beans and the wonderful flavor of the Carapelli Olive Oil. Did I say how much I loved it? It is so simple, filling and just so delicious.
