460 calories per serving 


Ingredients

2 apples, green, Granny Smith type, thinly sliced   360 g
4 tbsp butter, unsalted, softened   55 g
1 tsp curry powder   3 g
8 slices country bread, lightly toasted   360 g
1 bunch watercress   120 g
2 cups Cheddar cheese, low-fat (4%), thinly sliced   160 g

Method

  1. Preheat the top broiler. Arrange the bread slices on a baking sheet then grill for a couple minutes until lightly browned.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the butter with the curry, then spread this mixture on the toasted bread slices. Put half of the cheese slices on each bread slice, then add the apple slices and top with the watercress. Cover with the remaining cheese slices, taking care to cover the watercress leaves so that they will not burn.
  3. Put in the oven at a distance of about 10 cm below the heating element and grill until the cheese melts and the crostini tops are nicely coloured, 2-3 min. Serve.
