Bobby's Chilli Crostini
I love watching the Food network channel especially The Pioneer Women and Barefoot Contessa.
I try to replicate a lot of the recipes I see on the shows, what is life if you don’t actually test those recipes you watch?
I have been dying to try out crostini, ever since I saw it being made on Julia and Julie, but all the recipes I have come across have been so complicated, until I saw this simple recipe on the early morning episode I happened to watch.
I of course deconstructed the recipe and then recreated it to become more Indian.
250g cream cheese, at room temperature.
250g crumbled feta cheese.
2/3 cups olive oil.
1 lemon, juiced squeezed out.
Salt and freshly ground pepper for seasoning.
2 tsp garlic and ginger paste.
2 tbsp. white wine vinegar.
2 pounds cherry tomatoes.
3 tbsp. chopped coriander.
2 tbsp. pine nuts.
Tabasco sauce.
Sliced green chillies.
French loaf.
Cut the French loaf into diagonal slices.
Drizzle olive oil over the top and pop into a preheated oven to bake for 5 minutes at 180 degrees till the bread is nice and crispy.
Remove from the oven and set aside.
In a blender, add the cream cheese, 1/3 cup olive oil, the garlic and ginger, feta cheese.
Blender till nice and smooth and well blended.
Using a butter knife, spread generous amounts of the mixture onto the toasted slices.
In a bowl, add the quartered cherry tomatoes, the vinegar, the remaining oil olive and the lemon juice.
Mix and allow to set for 10 minutes.
Carefully spoon the mixture onto each slice of toast.
Sprinkle the sliced green chillies over the top.
Dash some tabasco over the top.
Add the pine nuts.
Finally sprinkle chopped coriander over the top and season well.
