It was fast to make! We made them for a party at the office. They were a big hit and people asked me for the recipe. I told them to check out foodgeeks to get it.
Keep up the great work! April 7, 2001

We had a small party last night and my wife saw this recipe and had the makings on hand and thought to try it. They were good and she said fast to make. Our friends could not figure out what they were or how to make them. But they were all gone at the end of the night. February 14, 2004

I made them when we a pool party this summer. I was looking for something that would hold up with out keeping cold. They were great and fast to make and held up very well out by the pool.
Every one enjoyed them and asked how I came up with white beans and walnuts? I won't tell
Thank you August 30, 2004

This bruschetta is simple but can be dressed up. Instead of parsley, I added a sage leaf and drizzled honey on the top. I also added kosher salt to the bean puree and a a sprinkle of fleur de sel on top. This recipe is a solid base for lots of creativity. August 26, 2010

For anyone who can't eat nuts, you can substitute a slice of fresh tomato on top with 1-2 leaves of basil, plus some finishing salt. August 26, 2010

I'm a big fan of white bean purees like the one featured in this Bruschetta. Another solid recipe Einar! :) September 9, 2010
