Rachel Swetnam serves up a delicious Greek twist on an Italian favorite.

Greek Bruschetta

This recipe was made for my book club when we read Middlesex. This appetizer was very easy to make, filled the house with great aromas and looks pretty too. It is a perfect dish to serve at a dinner party or any social engagement, even book club.

The original recipe calls for all butter bean. Because I am not a huge fan of butter bean I swapped half of it out for white beans. But you can try it with either, depending on your taste.
