    1 organic whole grain or gluten-free ciabatta loaf, cut into 12 - 1 in (2.5 cm) slices
    2 Tbsp (30 mL) extra-virgin olive oil, divided
    1 clove garlic, halved
    1 - 15 oz (415 g) can white beans, drained and rinsed
    1 cup (250 mL) arugula
    Zest of 1 lemon
    1 Tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice
    1/4 tsp (1 mL) sea salt
    1/4 tsp (1 mL) ground black pepper
