White bean, avocado and smoked trout tartines

This is a simple and delicious  snack, lunch or appetizer, perfect for a warm day since there’s barely any heat involved. There’s lots of room to make this your own. Adapted from Tartelette . Serves 2 as written here, but you can easily multiply for a crowd.


  • 6 slices baguette
  • Olive oil
  • 1/2 tin smoked trout, broken into chunks
  • 1/2 a 14oz can of white beans (cannellini beans, northern white beans, etc)
  • 1/4 ripe avocado
  • Fresh dill
  • Salt and pepper
  • Juice of half a lemon


  1. Heat grill (or grill pan). Brush baguette slices with olive oil and grill until grill marks appear. Set aside
  2. Place beans in a food processor with olive oil, salt and pepper to taste. Mix until a spreadable consistency. You can also just mash them in a bowl of you prefer. 
  3. Spread bean mixture on grilled baguette. Top with avocado slices and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top with smoked trout, sprinkle with dill and squeeze the lemon over the top.
