Crostini With Roasted Red Pepper and Feta

“From the April 2004 issue of Southern Living. I'm sure garbanzo beans would make a good substitute for the Northern beans. Original recipe called for jarred roasted peppers, but I chose to roast my own.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To roast the garlic and red bell peppers, first arrange the garlic cloves on a piece of foil, drizzle with some olive oil and fold foil to seal. Next place the whole bell peppers on the baking sheet. Drizzle about 1/2 tablespoon olive oil onto the peppers, turning to coat. Roast for about 15-20 at 425°F Watch carefully!
  2. Once the garlic and roasted bell peppers are done, set aside to cool. In a food processor, squeeze the garlic out of their skin. Next peel the bell peppers, remove seeds and stem, chop coarsely and add to processor. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil, beans, vinegar, salt, pepper and half of feta. Pulse about 5 or 6 times or until combined.
  3. Cut bread into 24 slices (1/4") on the diagonal. Arrange the bread slices on the baking sheet, and brush with remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil.
  4. Spread the bell pepper-bean mixture on one side of each slice of bread. Lastly, sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  5. Bake at 350°F for 5-7 minutes.
  6. Garnish with Italian parsley and serve.
