Failsafe Recipes: Lunches and Snacks

Evil bean bruschetta (V)

Bruschetta is a traditional Italian food consisting of grilled bread rubbed with garlic and topped with olive oil, vegetables or other toppings. This failsafe version comes from Michelle who says ‘it got its name from a friend of mine who isn’t a failsafer but she loves it all the same, and she thinks it’s evil!’

1 tin cannelloni beans
¼ cup of oil (half of this to cook with and half to pour over the top)
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped.
2 baguette rolls, cut as though you were making a bruschetta and lightly toasted.

Cream the beans in a processor. Mix together half the oil and garlic in a separate bowl and leave to infuse. Fry the other half of the garlic and oil until they start to crisp, do this slowly. Add beans and cook gently until hot. Serve hot on toasted bruschetta and drizzle infused oil on top. – thanks to Michelle
