This colourful stew is filled out with creamy, chunky butter beans and wilted spinach leaves then served with garlic bread to mop up the tomato juices. See method
of the reference intake
Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat and fry the onion with a pinch of salt for 6-8 mins until tender. Add half the garlic, fry for 30 secs, then add the tomatoes, swirl each can out with 50ml water and add to the pan with 1½ tsp oregano. Simmer for 10 mins until the sauce thickens slightly. Add the zest and juice, sugar, beans and spinach; stir until the spinach wilts, then simmer for another 10 mins until the sauce is thick enough to coat the beans. Add a splash of water if the beans look dry.
Meanwhile, preheat the grill to high. Grill the bloomer slices for 1-2 mins each side until lightly golden. Mix the remaining 2½ tbsp oil, the garlic, half the basil, a pinch of oregano and some black pepper. Brush over one side of the toasts and grill for 1-2 mins until crunchy and the garlic is fragrant. Stir the remaining basil through the stew and serve with the garlic toasts.
