  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic chopped
  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 cans cannellini beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • ¼ cup vegetable broth or stock
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • fresh basil


  • In a large saucepan, add olive oil over medium heat.
  • After a minute, add your chopped garlic. Cook until fragrant, about 3 minutes.
  • Add your red pepper flakes and cannellini beans to the pan. Stir well over low heat.
  • In a small bowl, mix the tomato paste with the vegetable broth/stock. This will help eliminate any tomato clumps and give you that saucy texture with the beans.
  • Add your tomato broth mixture to the pan. Stir well with the beans for about 2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper to taste. Top with lots of fresh basil. Mangia!
