460 calories/serving


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


  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.
