Tuscan White Bean Bruschetta

Tuscan White Bean Bruschetta
Recipe Date:
August 2, 2021
Cook Time:
Imperial (US)
  • 1 lb White Beans, dried
  • 12 cups Water
  • 4 Cloves Garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 5 Fresh Sage Leaves
  • 1 Bay Leaf
  • 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper (to taste)
  • Granulated Garlic (to taste)

Rinse the dried white beans and put in a pot. Pour cold water over beans, until covered. Set aside to soak for 4 hours.

Take beans, 12 cups of water, garlic, sage, bay leaf, and 2 tbsp olive oil in a large saucepan. Cover with a lid, and bring to a simmer, over medium-low heat, for about an hour. Simmer on low, while stirring occasionally until beans are tender, about 1-2 hours. We want a slow simmer for best flavor.

Remove the saucepan from the heat, to allow the beans to cool, about 15 minutes. 

Drain beans, and drizzle with 1/4 cup olive oil, salt, pepper, and granulated garlic - all to taste. Mash with potato masher until 2/3 mashed or desired consistency.

Spread on crostini, french bread, or cracker, garnish with fresh sage and enjoy!
