White Bean Grilled BruschettaI’ve saved this great recipe especially for Labor Day.  You know we love to grill around here.  We’ll be making my dad’s special BBQ chicken with this great marinade, Garlic Basil Corn on the Cob and my favorite Three Onion Potato Salad.  A great addition to our menu will be this White Bean Grilled Bruschetta with Radish and Cilantro.

White Bean Spread and Radishes

While the grill is hot, we’ll be making this Grilled Bruschetta topped with White Bean, Radish and Cilantro.  It’s a satisfying appetizer combining grill flavor with creamy spread and spicy crunch.

White Bean Grilled Bruschetta with Radish and Cilantro
  • 4 baguettes (I used Udi's Gluten Free)
  • 2 can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • ¼ c olive oil, more for brushing the bread before grilling
  • 6 cloves of garlic
  • thinly sliced radishes
  • chopped cilantro
  1. Preheat grill to 350 degrees.
  2. Thickly slice each baguette.
  3. Brush with garlic flavored olive oil. (You can also mince some garlic and let sit in the olive oil for 1 hour.)
  4. Grill bread until golden on each side.
  5. Place the canellini beans in a food processor.
  6. Turn on and stream in the olive oil.
  7. Process until smooth but slightly chunky.
  8. Spread on each slice.
  9. Top with radishes and cilantro.
  10. Enjoy!

Best of Travel 2018

2018 was one for the books in the way of travel for me.  This time last year I had no idea it would be that way!  We created so many memories as a family traveling to Mexico, Rome, Florence and Venice.  Travel is something our whole family loves to do and I can’t wait to see what this year holds!
