White Beans on Toast


  • White beans
  • Bread
  • Seasoning: salt, pepper, crushed red pepper, garlic powder, oregano, chopped onion
  • Optional: mushroom, onions, garlic, pesto, spinach, diced green chili peppers
  • Garnish: cilantro or parsley


  • Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a pan
  • Saute 1/2 c sliced or chopped mushrooms (I use organic baby bella mushrooms). After 3 minutes, add 2 Tbsp chopped onion and turn the mushrooms to brown the other side. After another 2 minutes, and 1 tsp minced garlic. Cook another 1-2 minutes.
  • Add 1 can (or ~2 cups) white beans. Mix. Cook 2 minutes. Add 1/4 c water and allow it to simmer so the mixture thickens. Smash some of the beans (about a quarter of the mixture) during this step to thicken further.
  • Optional: add 1 1/2c chopped spinach and allow to wilt
  • Season with 1/4 tsp salt + 1/4 tsp pepper + 1 tsp crushed red pepper + 1 tsp oregano
  • If using dried chopped onion instead, add it now (1 Tbsp)
  • Optional: add green chili peppers or pesto and mix through
  • Add water as needed to keep it creamy. If it becomes to runny, just continue to heat until water evaporates until beans at desired consistency.
  • Garnish with 1 Tbsp chopped cilantro or parsley
  • Spoon onto toasted bread


* Great additions to the toast include mashed avocado, tomato, roasted sweet peppers, roasted asparagus, olive tamponade, hummus – really, the combinations are endless
* This mix can be added onto any bruschetta mix for a heartier bruschetta meal

Shopping List

Below are affiliate links to products available on Amazon or at Whole Foods. Your local grocer and stores may have similar items so always comparison shop. I often find deals on cookware at HomeGoods/TJMaxx and is where I purchased all the ‘equipment’ below
