Serves: 4 (as a meal, or 8-12 as an appetizer)Ready In: 20 minutes

Why We Like It

This is one crazy good version of bruschetta!  It's special enough for guests, yet simple to prepare for a quick weekday dinner.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees

Toast the bread:

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 whole grain baguette (or gluten-free bread, 8 oz, sliced into 12 pieces)

Add oil, paprika, salt and pepper to a small bowl.

Brush mixture onto both sides of the bread slices.  Place the bread on a baking sheet and bake for 4 minutes.  Flip the bread and bake another 4 minutes or until crispy and just slightly browned.  When done, remove from the oven and set aside.

Cook the onion:

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves (finely diced, or 1/2 tsp garlic powder)
  • 1/2 small yellow onion (diced)

Add oil to a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the garlic and onion and sauté for 3 minutes or until beginning to get tender.

Add the Seasonings:

  • 1 (15 oz) can cannellini beans (or white bean of your choice, no salt added, rinsed and drained)
  • 12 sun-dried tomatoes (chopped)
  • 1 Tbsp fresh rosemary (chopped, or 1 tsp dried rosemary)
  • 2 tsp fresh oregano (chopped, or 1 tsp dried oregano)

Add to the skillet with the garlic and onions.  Stir and cook for one minute.

Add the wine and beans:

  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley (chopped)

Add the wine to the skillet, scraping the pan, and cook just until wine is absorbed (which will only take about one minute).

Stir in fresh parsley and remove from the heat.

Serve and Enjoy!

Spread the bean mixture evenly over the bread.

Quick Tips

If you are taking this to a party, go ahead and cook everything in advance, but wait until you get there to assemble, so the bread doesn’t get soggy.  Simply reheat the bean topping in the microwave before assembling.  Be ready to share the recipe, because you WILL be asked for it!

You can also serve this as lettuce wraps, using leaf lettuce or romaine.
