    Butter bean & aubergine pesto on toast

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes

    Serves: 2


    11⁄2 tbsp olive oil
    1 garlic clove, sliced
    400g can butter beans, drained and rinsed
    3 tbsp Belazu Aubergine & Parmesan Pesto
    2 tbsp single cream
    1 tsp lemon juice
    175g pack Waitrose Smoky Chargrilled Artichokes in a Herb Dressing, roughly chopped
    4 small slices sourdough
    10 mint leaves, finely shredded


    1.Preheat the grill to high. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute, then add the butter beans and a pinch of salt.

    2. Fry for another minute then stir in the aubergine pesto, cream and 4-5 tbsp water so the beans are nicely coated in a sauce. Stir in the lemon juice and artichokes, season and set aside off the heat.

    3. Brush the sourdough with the remaining 1⁄2 tbsp oil and place under the grill for 1 minute or until lightly toasted.

    Top with the butter bean and aubergine pesto, scatter with the mint leaves and serve immediately.
