Dainty little slices of crisp bread, topped with appetizing ingredients like cheese, veggies, herbs and sauces, crostinis are undoubtedly one of the most popular starters from the Italian repertoire.

A platter of Crostini enjoyed with a bowl of hot soup is nothing short of a heavenly experience.

In this particular variant, the crostini is coated with a luscious and tasty spread of ricotta cheese and garlic, and topped with a scrumptious combo of spinach and sesame seeds.

Another unique aspect of this Ricotta and Spinach Crostini is that the bread is brushed with coconut oil instead of olive oil, a special touch that will make you go ‘wow’!

Interestingly very healthy combination of the ricotta and spinach on the crostini which was loved by my office colleagues at the get together.
