Author Notes: Needed a twist on the typical tomato and garlic bruschetta, and using cannellini beans is affordable and tasty. The crisp arugula and bright orange will transform your taste buds!Chef Merlin


Serves 8

  • 1 Loaf Bread
  • 1 15 oz. can Cannellini Beans
  • 8 ounces Feta Cheese
  • Parsley
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Olive Oil
  • 2 Oranges
  • 1 Bunch Arugula
  1. Cut loaf of bread to desired size and grill on both sides until crispy on both sides. Place aside.
  2. Combine cannellini beans, feta, salt, pepper and a splash of good olive oil together in a mixing bowl and mash until smooth in texture. Add in chopped parsley and mix to combine.
  3. Cut top and bottom off of each orange and with a knife cut away the out skin. Cut orange into supremes--making cuts along the membrane to make individual orange segments. Put the supremes into a bowl and squeeze the remaining juice from the leftover orange.
  4. Assemble bruschetta with a spoonful of the bean puree on each piece of bread. Add a handful of arugula on top of each. Scatter some orange supremes on top and drizzle each bruschetta with orange juice and some salt.
