How to make Bruschetta with White Bean Spread 

 

Dice the tomatoes and place them in a medium bowl. Add salt to the tomatoes and mix. Let sit for 10 mins. This will help pull out the excess water from the tomatoes.

 

After 10 minutes (or longer if you have the time), strain the excess water. Add the remaining bruschetta ingredients to the bowl mix until evenly combined. 

 

While you’re waiting for the tomatoes to strain, add the white bean spread ingredients to a food processor. Blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. 

 

If you’re using a baguette or fresh loaf of bread, cut the loaf into slices and brush one side with olive oil. Broil in your oven until lightly toasted.
