1 small baguette, thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic
1 1/2 tsp salt, plus additional for seasoning
65ml extra-virgin olive oil
2 sprigs fresh rosemary, leaves stripped (about 1 1/2 tablespoons)
Pinch crushed red pepper
1 (425g) tin cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
Crisp vegetables, for dipping (optional)
Preheat oven to 200C/Gas 6.

1) Lay bread on a baking tray. Rub each slice with a clove of garlic and sprinkle with a pinch of salt; reserve garlic clove. Toast in oven until golden, about 8 minutes.

2) Chop all garlic cloves. Cook garlic in the olive oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat, stirring, until it is golden, about 3 minutes. Pull skillet from heat; stir in rosemary and red pepper and cool slightly.

3) Put beans, the 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and all but 1 teaspoon of the rosemary oil in a food processor and process until smooth. Scrape puree into a serving bowl and drizzle with reserved rosemary oil. Serve with toasted baguette and, if desired, raw vegetables.
