Spinach Artichoke White Bean Crostini

Jump to Recipe

We went to our 25 week Dr’s appointment this week and everything is looking great! Our little pea is growing right on schedule and his heart beat is strong. We are getting more and more excited for our little guy to arrive. I hope the rest of the pregnancy goes well and fast:) After our appointment, I came home and made Spinach Artichoke White Bean Crostini. This crostini recipe would be perfect for any party, but since it was the middle of the day and I didn’t have any party plans, I had a party for two. This crostini made a great lunch for me and the baby:)

I toasted baguette slices in the oven and topped each slice with a mixture of spinach, artichokes, white beans, basil, garlic, lemon, and feta cheese. All of the flavors combined to create a fantastic crostini. I loved the creamy texture the white beans and feta cheese added. The garlic, lemon, and basil also gave the crostini a kick of freshness. The green and white color was also nice.

This Spinach Artichoke White Bean Crostini is simple to make and perfect for any summer party. It also makes a great light lunch or healthy snack. And I love that I picked the basil for this recipe out of our herb garden. I just love summer!
