Cannellini Crostini

Makes 16

Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 1 (8-ounce) baguette, cut crosswise  into 16 slices

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained

  • 1/2 cup dry white wine

  • 1 (15-ounce) can cannellini beans, rinsed, drained

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley


Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Use 1-1/2 tablespoons of the oil to lightly brush baguette slices. Place them on a baking sheet and toast in the oven until just crisp and lightly browned. Remove and set aside.

  3. Heat remaining oil in a large skillet over medium heat and add onion. Cook, stirring often, until softened. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.

  4. Add tomatoes, wine, and beans and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue to simmer for 5 minutes.

  5. Season with salt and pepper and stir in parsley.

  6. Transfer bean mixture to a serving bowl.

  7. Serve with toasted baguette slices, letting guests heap bean mixture onto their toasts.
