    Marinated Beans on Toast

    Here’s proof that the simplest dishes can be ready to impress. Enjoy for a fibre-packed dinner or an elegant lunch. Go one step further and top with good quality canned sardines or a poached egg.

    Raise a toast

    Beyond the toaster, crisp bread in a skillet. Place a generous amount of olive oil (enough to cover the bottom of the pan) in heavy skillet and turn heat to medium-high. When oil is glistening, place bread in pan and heat until golden, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Or place oil-brushed bread slices directly on a grill grate and heat until dark marks appear, about 1 minute per side. You can also toast bread using the broiler setting in your oven.
