A Great Starter
This easy appetizer is perfect for a family dinner or as hors d' oeuvres for your next party.
Grill small slices of bread in a grill pan or use day old bread that has been cut into small triangles. Another option is to use a box of crackers.
Drain 1 can white beans, rinse, and mash them. Stir in olive oil, white wine vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste. Spread white bean puree on toasts.
Drain bottled artichoke hearts, saving the liquid. Chop hearts coarsely. Drain can of shrimp and toss them with the artichoke liquid and hot red pepper flakes. Gently fold hearts back into mixture and mound some on toasts. Garnish with olives.
