Asparagus Toast with Garlicky Tomato Spread
It’s been one of those months. My refrigerator was out of commission for over two weeks. Plus, with some huge changes at home and a lot of travel, the blog has been sorely neglected. Not to mention all of those incredibly fun Living Social cooking classes.
Has anyone else been crazy busy lately? Whew.
I’ve got several new recipes up my sleeve, and this is the first I want to share with you. This light meal doesn’t look like much, but it’s tremendously filling and packed with flavor. The best part is many of these ingredients are probably hiding in your cabinets already and it only takes minutes to put it all together.
If you don’t have asparagus on hand, feel free to pile the toast and spread with arugula, sauteed leeks or Swiss chard, artichoke hearts, or even some baked eggplant slices. The lemony oil does help bring out the flavor in the bean spread, so just dress the veggie of your choice with the lemon and you’re good to go.
Fast. Easy. Simple. Cheap. The ultimate option for a super busy day (or month!).
