Laura Linney and I cooked up some of my favorite recipes from The Kind Diet the other day for The Oprah Show. Of course I had to make this crostini dish! It’s ridiculously good… Great to serve at your next party, or just to make for a nice dinner at home! The best part is that you can use the leftover pesto and artichoke spread for sandwiches and other meals long after the crostini have been eaten! I urge you to make these… And then let me know how much you love them!
