Baking Sheet with Baking Paper


Get Prepped
  • Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
  • Halve the pepper and discard the core and seeds. Chop into 2 cm chunks.
  • Pop the pepper onto a lined baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper then toss to coat.
  • Roast on the top shelf of your oven until soft and slightly charred, 15-18 mins.
Mash the Beans
  • Meanwhile, drain and rinse the cannellini beans in a sieve.
  • Transfer one-third to a bowl (reserving the rest) and mash with a fork. 
  • Roughly chop the parsley (stalks and all). 
  • Drain the grilling cheese then cut into slices, 3 per person.
  • Place the slices into a small bowl of cold water and leave to soak.

TIP: The mashed beans will add a nice thickness to the stew.

Start the Stew
  • Place a large pot over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, stir in the harissa paste and half the garlic. Cook until fragrant, 1 min.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes and 50ml water (double for 4p).
  • Bring to a simmer, then leave to bubble for 5 mins.
  • Add the whole and mashed beans. Cook until the stew has reduced slightly, 5-6 mins.

TIP: Add a splash of water to loosen the stew if required.

Make the Garlic Bread
  • While the stew simmers, mix the remaining garlic and half the parsley with 1 tbsp oil (double for 4p) in a small bowl. 
  • Halve the baguettes lengthways.
  • Using a spoon, rub the herby garlic oil over the cut sides of the baguettes.
  • Cut the herby baguettes into triangles.
Finish the Stew
  • Stir the roasted pepper into the stew along with the remaining parsley. Season to taste with salt and pepper
  • Pop the baguette onto the (now empty) baking tray and cook on the top shelf of your oven until warmed through, 2-3 mins. 
  • Remove the grilling cheese slices from the cold water and pat dry with kitchen paper. 
  • Place a pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil
  • Once hot, add the cheese and fry until golden, 2-3 mins each side.
Serve and Enjoy
  • Spoon the hearty harissa bean stew into bowls. 
  • Carefully arrange the grilling cheese slices on top.
  • Serve the garlicky baguette on the side.
