Lima-Bean Crostini with Ricotta

Source: Everyday Food, March 2012

Ingredients

  • 1 small baguette, cut into eighteen 1/2-inch-thick slices
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 peeled garlic cloves
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen lima beans
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup whole-milk ricotta

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place baguette slices on a rimmed baking sheet and brush with 2 tablespoons oil; season with salt and pepper. Bake until golden, 10 minutes. Rub warm slices with garlic cloves; let cool.

  2. Meanwhile, place rosemary in a small saucepan of salted water and bring to a boil. Add lima beans and cook until tender, 7 minutes. Drain and transfer to a cutting board. Strip leaves from rosemary sprigs; roughly chop beans and rosemary and place in a medium bowl. Add 2 tablespoons each oil and lemon juice; season with salt and pepper.

  3. Season ricotta with salt and pepper, then spread on crostini; top with lima-bean mixture.

Cook's Note

Bring It!
