    Simple to make and very tasty. Went down very well with my guests and it took all of 10 minutes to prepare!

    p. 25 Quick & lovely! mr bc had a hankering for some sort of bean antipasti and time was not on my side. A quick EYB search landed me here and true to form, Jamie didn’t disappoint. This made for a wonderfully aromatic, flavourful spread that tasted like it would have been a lot more work than it really was! Beans are drained and a couple of sprigs of rosemary are pounded in a mortar and pestle along w some salt. A glug of evoo is added and the mixture is set aside. Sliced garlic is fried in some evoo prior to adding the drained beans which are then simmered until tender. Beans are seasoned then mashed along w a swig of red wine vinegar – I used Pinot Noir vinegar. The rosemary oil is drizzled atop. The mixture was served warm w some freshly grilled crostini. Simple, delicious and satisfying. Photos here:
