A new look at cooking and home decorating...with an attempt to add more greens to the plate, more vegetarian options & hopefully lots of new ideas to explore

Artichoke Crostini

I have named this artichoke crostini for lack of a better title, maybe it is more of a rustic Bruschetta- but no matter... It is hardly even a recipe, yet it embodies all that is wonderful about summer cooking. I found these wonderful artichokes in the market then simmered them in oil and wine. Once cooked I slice the artichokes. Then, toasted several pieces of sourdough bread. On each toast place a scoop of ricotta cheese. On top of the cheese place the some cooked artichokes, a few pitted olives then drizzle with olive oil- season with salt and pepper. That’s it!

You will need
1 recipe Artichokes simmered in wine and oil
Toasted slices of sourdough bread
1 tablespoon of ricotta cheese to place on each piece of bread
Pitted black olives
The best olive oil you have, to be soaked up by the bread
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
