  1. Peel and finely slice the onion and garlic. Put the oil in a large frying pan over a medium-low heat and add the onion and garlic. Cook for 10 mins until softened, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle in the curry powder and cook for 1 min until fragrant.
  2. Drain the butter beans and add them to the pan with the passata. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook for 8 mins until slightly thickened. Stir in the spinach and cook for 2 mins until thawed, then season.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat the grill to medium and toast the bread on one side. Grate the cheese over the untoasted side, then grill for 1-2 mins until melted and bubbling.
  4. Divide the toasts between 4 plates, spoon over the curried beans and serve with a dollop of mango chutney, if you like.

Tip: Blitz any leftover beans with a little vegetable stock for a creamy soup.

Freezing and defrosting guidelines

Make a big batch of the beans, then portion up and freeze for a comforting meal another day. In order to enjoy optimum flavour and quality, frozen items are best used within 3 months of their freezing date. For more tips on freezing and defrosting food, read our article Love Your Freezer.
