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

Roasted Tomato and White Bean Crostini white kidney beans vegetarian vegan tomatoes salads recipe grape tomatoes food dinner crostini beans

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.
