Ingredients


White bean spread:
4 tbsp (60 mL) butter, melted
1 tbsp (15 mL) clove garlic , minced
1 can 19 oz (540 mL) white beans, drained, liquid reserved
Freshly ground salt and pepper, to taste
2 tbsp (30 mL) lemon juice, freshly squeezed
2 tbsp (30 mL) fresh parsley, chopped
1 bunch of rapini (broccoli raab)
6 slices of country bread
1 clove garlic, halved
2/3 cup (160 mL) Canadian Ricotta
2 tbsp (30 mL) fresh herbs, finely chopped

Preparation

In a food processor, combine all ingredients for the white bean spread. Process until smooth, adding some of the reserved bean liquid, if needed. Adjust seasoning and set aside.

Trim the ends from the rapini stems and discard the lower leaves. Cook rapini in a large quantity of boiling salted water until al dente. Remove from pot, rinse under cold water, drain well and pat dry.

Toast bread slices and rub with garlic. Spread some white bean puree on each slice, garnish with rapini stems and top with fresh ricotta combined with fresh herbs.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper before serving.

Tips

Instead of canned beans, you can cook your own using 1/2 cup (125 mL) dried white beans. To avoid overnight soaking, cover the beans with cold water, bring to a full boil, turn off the heat and let sit, covered, for 1 hr before cooking until tender.
