Happy Fathers’ Day to all the papás, the dads out there! Today we began our day at the farmers’ market, as we do every first and third Sunday of the month. Instead of just showing you some of my purchases, I’ll share a quick recipe I put together before even storing my vegetables. The ‘green green’ crostini are made with green onions and quick steamed green beans. The proportions are just right for two people and can easily be multiplied for company. The green onion flavor is strong – blend in extra cheese or reduce the amount onion if you’d like a milder taste.
Green Green Crostini
- 10 green beans, steamed and chopped (I used the microwave)
- 1 whole green onion, white and green parts, chopped.
- 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1/4 cup whipped cream cheese
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- salt to taste
- toasted baguette slices
Blend all ingredients in the food processor and spread on top of the toasted baguette slices. Doesn’t get any easier than that!
Here are my main ingredients for today’s recipe. I’ll be doing a contribution with more of this week’s market pictures to Summer Tomato. Her site is filled with great information on health, nutrition, food trends – I cannot recommend it enough.
