Fava Bean and Tomato Crostini #SecretRecipeClub

Seasoned fava beans and a fresh tomato puree topped on toasted baguettes make a simple & delicious seasonal appetizer. A perfect accompaniment to almost any meal.

Like most other bloggers, there is an endless list of recipes that I someday hope to get around to. Everyday, I find something new, whether it be on Pinterest or other blogs I visit…everywhere I go I am constantly inspired by food!

Of course, due to other demands and life in general, I can’t make everything I would like to.

It is for this very reason that I love being a part of the Secret Recipe Club. Each month bloggers are assigned a blog from which they must recreate an original recipe. Then on ‘reveal day’, we publish our recipes, thus revealing whose site we have been assigned. It is a nice way to meet new foodies and try recipes I would probably not have made otherwise.
