So – onto the recipe…..
You can serve this as bruschetta with the beans dished up on toast. Or, serve the beans in the middle of the table with bread on the side so your guests can help themselves.
You can make this with cannelloni beans or butter beans or even chickpeas.
I made it as a side dish with no bread, but bread would have been great. I actually added finely chopped onion since I was out of garlic. The outside gets a little crunchy from being fried and the inside is soft. So good.
What you need:
1 can butter beans, drained
1-2 cloves garlic, peeled & finely sliced
2 small sprigs rosemary, leaves picked
pinch chili flakes
What you do:
Heat a small frying pan over a medium heat and add 3 tablespoons olive oil. Add remaining ingredients and stir fry beans until they are golden and warmed through.
Season well and serve with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
