Method

  1. Drain the tin of artichoke hearts and put them in a food processor with a good squeeze of lemon, the crushed garlic clove, 1 tbsp of the extra virgin olive oil, the Parmesan, a good pinch of salt and plenty of black pepper. Pulse to a chunky purée, scraping down the sides once or twice. Stir in a few snipped chives. This can be made a day ahead and chilled.
  2. Grill 12 slices of the baguette on each side until golden, rub lightly with the cut garlic clove and brush with the rest of the extra virgin olive oil. Spread generously with artichoke mix, scatter over Parmesan shavings and remaining chives, grind over pepper and serve.

This recipe was tasty and others liked it when I made it for them. I found it too garlicy though so would use much less next time, and then I think it would be a nice recipe for the summer.

Not a huge hit. I bought some ready made crostini from M&S and they were awful - definitely not worth the short cut. The topping wasn't amazing though so I'm not sure I'd bother doing this again.

Made this the other weekend when we had family over for a BBQ.
They all loved it, however I found the garlic a bit too strong so would use less next time.

Used parsley instead of chives. Literally took a minute to make. Delicious!
