So hey,I just wanted to let you know what I did with those yummy little red gems from the weekend.

Roasted Tomato Crostini

The next day, because that is how I roll, I tossed the roasted cherry tomatoes with some beans and garlic for a supper quick dinner. Crostini with a salad – so easy.

  • 1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, roasted as done here
  • 2-4 Tablespoons stock or white wine ( i used a bit of each) for sautéing
  • 1 can white kidney beans,rinsed and drained
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 2 green onions, white and light green parts, thinly sliced
  • 8 large basil leaves, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Toasted bread slices

In a non-stick skillet over medium heat, toss tomatoes, stock or wine (just enough to moisten, prevent sticking and to create a bit of sauce), add beans, garlic and green onion.  Cook until heated through and you have just a bit of sauce left at the bottom. The toasted bread will soak up that yumminess.

Add the basil leaves and a good quality olive oil and toss until just combined.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve on top of toasted baguette slices.
