For the cheese toasts:

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 400g can cannellini beans, drained
  • Leaves picked from 1 rosemary sprig

  • 30g butter

Method

  • STEP 1
    1.Heat the oil in a pan and add the onion. Turn the heat down low and cook for 5-10 minutes until starting to soften. Stir in the garlic, cannellini beans and rosemary leaves and continue to cook for a couple of minutes.
  • STEP 2
    2.Pour in the stock and wine and bring to the boil. Season well then cover with a lid and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Allow the soup to cool a little and then use a stick blender to whiz until smooth. Season to taste again, adding a squeeze of lemon juice to balance the flavour. Keep warm.
  • STEP 3
    3.Put half the sliced bread on a board and spread over the soured cream evenly. Top with the cheese and put the other half of the bread on top. Slice each piece into thick fingers.
  • STEP 4
    4.Put the butter into a frying pan and allow to melt over a low to medium heat. Fry the fingers, in batches, in the pan until golden on each side. Ladle the soup among four bowls, top with the grated cheese and a little black pepper and serve with the toasts.
