These canapes were great for appetizer. We served them when we invited my husband's father to come for a lunch, and he loved them and couldn't stop eating these delicious canapes. He said just having these would be enough, no need to cook other course. The oven dried tomatoes were absolutely a killer, they were a little bit chewy but you could still feel the juicy; and because of the slow and long roasting, the flavor had been concentrated so much, so every bite was like a delicious explosion happing in your mouth. The mixture of the soy bean paste was creamy, smooth and perfectly balanced with the tomato and crackers. These small treats are good for appetizer or snack, they definitely will impress you!
