Creamy beans on toast
A no-recipe recipe that is a must-have for your back pocket. Never forget: good, crusty bread is the perfect vessel for creamy beans.
What you’ll need
- A batch of beans cooked according to our guide (for flavorings, try Italian with the Parmesan rind)
- Good crusty bread
- Really good olive oil
- Flaky salt
- Freshly ground pepper
- Fresh chopped herbs– basil, thyme, chervil, parsley, etc. (optional)
Keep beans warm or reheat. Lightly toast a slice of bread. Spoon a generous amount of beans over bread. Drizzle with lots of olive oil, and sprinkle with flaky sea salt, freshly ground pepper, and herbs (if using). Enjoy immediately.
We could imagine this with...
A tangy/peppery/bitter salad. Grated parmesan. A jammy egg. Cooked down leafy greens folded into the beans before serving.
