What are crostini?

The Italian appetizer (also called Bruschetta) is a popular starter not only in Italy for good reason. It is easy and quick to make, and the topping possibilities are endless.

The base is always sliced bread, which is toasted for extra crispiness. Then, the crunchy bread is topped with all kinds of spreads, meat, fish, veggies and herbs to create a flavourful treat.

Tips for making this recipe

  • Blend the white beans with an immersion blender or food processor to get the creamy consistency.
  • Let the white bean spread cool before spreading onto the crostini. This way, the crostini stays crispy and won’t get warm and soggy.
  • You can make the bean spread the day before and have it on hand when needed. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
  • Serve with a cocktail or sparkling wine. My Pomegranate Mimosa is the perfect match for these savoury crostini.
