Mushroom Crostini

I love this dish… The crunchy crostini pairs well with the creaminess of the white bean spread and the earthiness of the mushrooms.  Definitely good for a snack, a side dish, or an appetizer, but it can sustain itself as a meal along with a fresh green salad.

Mushroom Crostini

 

Mushroom Topping:

4 cups sliced or chopped mushrooms

4 garlic cloves, minced

1 teaspoon olive oil

1 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon Herbes de Provence

Green onion finely sliced (for garnish)

Add all ingredients (except green onion) to a non-stick frying pan and cook on medium-high till mushrooms are slightly brown in color.

 

White Bean Spread:

1 can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon water

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1 garlic clove

3/4 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped

Combine all ingredients except the parsley in a food processor and puree until smooth.  Transfer the mixture into a small bowl and fold in chopped parsley.

 

Crostini:

1 thin baguette

Olive oil for brushing

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Cut the baguette into 1/4 inch slices on a slight diagonal.  Brush each piece of baguette with olive oil and transfer to a baking sheet.

Bake for 6-8 minutes (flip half way through), or until golden.

 

Assembling:

Spread a layer of the white bean spread on each of the baguette slices, top with mushrooms, and garnish with green onion.
