This is a great recipe that I found in “Choe’s Kitchen”, so easy to make and yet so full of flavor. I like eating this as a snack or as an appetizer. When I’m invited to someone’s home, I like bringing this recipe, it’s so tasty and I usually end up bringing an empty tray back with me.
I hope you enjoy it!

In a food processor, pulse artichoke hearts, parsley, walnuts, garlic, lemon juice, salt, pepper, oil, and water until combined. Set aside.
Place the bread slices on a large baking sheet and bake 5-8 minutes or until lightly browned.
Lightly brush each slice with olive oil and spread the pesto on the crostini and transfer to a serving platter.
