I made White Bean Bruschetta for Darren's birthday party. It's hard to go wrong with bruschetta in the first place, but with a layer of goat cheese under the tomato topping, it was amazing!
1 cup canned great northern beans, rinsed and drained
3 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1/4 cup chopped pitted Greek olives
6 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1/4 cup fresh basil, cut into thin strips
1 tablespoon minced garlic
salt and pepper to taste
1 French baguette, cut into 1/3 inch thick slices
5 ounces goat cheese
- In a medium bowl, combine the beans, tomatoes, olives, 4 tablespoons oil, basil, garlic, salt and pepper.
- Place bread slices on an ungreased baking sheet. Brush with remaining oil. Broil 3-4 in. from the heat until golden, about 1 minute. Spread with cheese; top with bean mixture. Serve immediately.
