Navy Beans and Arugula-Walnut Pesto on Toast

My original intention wasn’t to eat this on toast.  To tell you the truth I am not quite sure what my original intention was.  I had this idea on mixing some white beans with some pesto.  So I just did it.  I chose navy beans and decided on an arugula walnut pesto that I just made up.

I love roasted walnuts.  I will say it again. I love roasted walnuts.  If you don’t know what I am talking about go to the kitchen right now, turn on the oven to about 350 degrees Fahrenheit, lay some walnuts out on a baking tray, and roast in the pre-heated oven for approx 4-5 mins.  Do not take your eyes off the walnuts after they have been in for 2 minutes.  You will forget about them and they will burn.  It happens so quickly and so easily.  So just be patient and keep your eyes on them.  It won’t take long.  When they start to smell good and change colour they are ready.

you will want to eat these while they are still warm.  They taste so good. Great healthy snack.
