Ingredients
  • 3 thick slices Italian bread, crusts removed
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 6 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 bunch Italian flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and fresh ground black pepper
  • 6 thinly sliced pieces Italian bread, brushed with extra-virgin olive oil and toasted
Directions
  • Tear the 3 thick slices of Italian bread into small 1-inch chunks and place in a medium mixing bowl. Add the red wine vinegar and toss to coat the bread and allow to soak for 10 minutes.

  • In a small bowl, add the tomato paste and mix in 2 tablespoons of warm water to dilute. Set aside.

  • Into the bowl of a food processor, add the capers, garlic, parsley and olive oil until you get a coarse chop. Add the soaked bread and tomato paste and mix until all the garlic is finely chopped. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

  • Spread the mixture onto the toasted crostini slices and serve.
