I’m posting this recipe a little late in the game. I first sampled these crisp crostini treats at book club some six months ago. Since then, I discovered they’re a popular feature on the menu at Cork, one of my favorite neighborhood restaurants. I’ve been meaning to write about them for ages. They are simply heaven- buttery, crispy and easy to make.
1 baguette, sliced
2 avocados, sliced
1/2 cup pistachios, shelled and coarsely chopped
extra virgin olive oil (or pistachio oil)
salt and pepper
Directions: Brush each slice of bread with olive oil. Broil until lightly toasted.
Top each crostini with avocado slices. Sprinkle with pistachios and drizzle a bit more oil over top.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
This recipe makes a perfectly easy snack for any sort of gathering. It was a huge hit at book club!
