Peach & Corn Crostini

Crostini are an Italian appetizer consisting of small slices of bread either grilled or toast with toppings. The possibilities are endless when it comes to the toppings but we have some healthy ingredients to start you off! 

In this episode of Gluten Free Tasty, Jenne Claiborne makes an easy and delicious appetizer: Peach and Corn Crostini with a Basil White Bean Puree. The peach and corn compliment each other very well and they are both packed with fiber if you need a snack to aid digestion. The colors are amazing and the taste is even better - fancy enough for a party but easy enough to make at a moment's notice.
