    Braised runner beans on toast

    A modern take on classic beans on toast, this is a super low-effort dish that packs in plenty of veg and flavour. Top with a handful of mixed seeds and feta, if you like. 

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 1 hour
    • Total time: 1 hour 5 minutes

    Serves: 2

    Ingredients

    280g essential runner beans, sliced into 5cm pieces
    2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus extra to drizzle
    4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
    2 x 400g cans essential plum tomatoes
    handful basil, roughly chopped
    2 slices sourdough 

    Method

    1. Blanch the beans in boiling water for 4-5 minutes; drain and set aside. Heat the oil in a wide pan, add the garlic and cook gently for 5-6 minutes until soft. Add the beans with a pinch of salt; cook for 4-5 minutes. Drain the tomatoes in a sieve; add to the pan. Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook for 30 minutes, stirring once or twice to break up the tomatoes.

    2. Uncover and cook for another 5-10 minutes until slightly thickened. Stir in most of the basil. Toast the bread, put onto plates and top with the beans, plus a little extra olive oil and the reserved basil.
