Tuna and Bean Crostini

From Italian Cooking and Living, October/November 2003

  • 1 15-ounce can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 6-ounce can tuna in olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 loaf cocktail-size bread, sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 1/2 cup sprouts
  • 8 black olives, pitted

Place the cannellini beans in a bowl, and roughly mash with a fork. Drain the tuna, and add it to the mashed beans. Add the olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Mix until smooth, and transfer the mixture to a pastry bag. (You can also use a food processor to make the tuna mixture even smoother.) Toast the bread slices, and pipe the mixture on each slice. Top each with some sprouts and an olive. Serves 4
