Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
  • 1 small clove garlic, finely grated, or to taste
  • 50g spinach (or kale, cavolo nero, watercress or rocket)
  • ½ x 400g can Essential Cannellini Beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tbsp Cooks’ Ingredients Cacio e Pepe Paste
  • 2 slice/s thick slices bread (sourdough, bloomer or ciabatta work well)
  • ½ lemon, juice
  • Pinch Cooks’ Ingredients Pul Biber, or a sliced red chilli, to serve (optional)

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan, then add the garlic and spinach (or other greens). Sauté over a medium heat until wilted. Mix in the beans.

  2. Stir in the cacio e pepe paste so the beans and greens are well coated. Heat for 1-2 minutes, until piping hot throughout

  3. Toast the bread, drizzle with olive oil, then pile the creamy beans and greens on top. Squeeze a little lemon juice over the dish, then season. Sprinkle with the pul biber or fresh chilli (if using) to finish.
