Fall is fast approaching and you know what that means… It’s time to indulge in soup, soup, soup! One I’ve recently made is the African Peanut Stew, which is also in my cookbook.

Savory African Peanut Stew

While it’s certainly amazing on its own, it’s also nice sometimes to dig into a hearty soup or stew with crostini. The crunchy addition provides a variance in texture and makes the meal more satiating.

Ever made crostini before? Don’t worry. It’s actually super simple. Don’t believe me? Try it for yourself by following the recipe outlined below. 😉
