Another day, another super simple and seasonal recipe. This is a great light appetizer for your summer get-togethers. Your friends will be impressed, but these tartines take very little effort. In fact, you can make the white bean and feta spread ahead of time and pre-cut the radishes, so all that’s left to do is toast the bread and compile the tartines. These also make a good snack or light lunch. There’s not much more to say…this recipe is all about keeping it simple!
White Bean & Feta Tartines
1 can of cannellini beans
1/4 cup fresh feta, crumbled
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
Pinch of garlic powder
Generous amount of salt and pepper
A couple slices of good quality grainy bread
A handful of radishes, sliced very thinly
Chives, for topping
In a small food processor, combine beans, feta, lemon juice, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Drizzle with a hearty dose of olive oil. Grind to a thick paste, leaving as chunky as you like or adding more olive oil to increase its smoothness. Meanwhile, toast slices of bread. Make sure the bread is toasted well, so it holds up to the bean spread. Cut each slice in half. Spread white bean and feta mixture onto each half slice of bread, then top with radish slices and cut chives. Serve on a platter or cutting board.
