  • Fry 4 thick slices of a rustic French-style bread (like sourdough) on med heat in a pan with some olive oil & butter until golden on both sides. Remove the bread from the pan, but keep it hot.
  • Place in the Pan
  • Garlic - 3 cloves, minced
  • Beans - c (100 g) drained, rinsed cannellini beans from a can
  • chard - 4 large stalks, leaves & stems cut into thin ribbons
  • lemon - juice from ½ lemon
  • (plus a sprinkle of olive oil, salt & pepper)


Sauté for about 2 min on med/low heat until beans are warmed & greens are wilted. Pile the mixture onto the toasted bread slices & top each with a squeeze of lemon, a drizzle of oil & a pinch of salt & pepper. Enjoy warm.
