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
 
Ingredients
  • 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
Instructions
  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 and garlic 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 or your favorite herb.
  10. Enjoy!

    Hi Alicia – I had quick question about gluten free…..what is your favorite brand to use for pasta? My doctor has recommended I try to do gluten free because of stomach issues I’ve had for my life. They tested me at last check and it showed negative, but she’s convinced I do! I’ve tried a few from local supermarket and not great. I know you’re the authority!

    Hope all is well with your family! Love your blog!
