Garlicky marinated white beans pack a flavor punch with white wine, fresh parsley, lemon, and lots of garlic.  Serve with toasted crostini.


  • 2 cans Cannellini (white) beans
  • 34 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil, plus more for cooking
  • 1/2 tablespoon freshly chopped parsley
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat garlic in olive oil in a large pan over medium heat until lightly browned and aromatic.  
  2. Add 1/3 cup dry white wine to the pan and allow it to reduce by half.
  3. Carefully add the 2 cans of drained and rinsed Cannellini white beans. Stir to coat in the white wine and garlic.  
  4. Salt to taste, starting with about 1 teaspoon. 
  5. Cover the pan and allow the beans to cook on low for about 10 minutes or until they are super tender.  They should mash with just a little pressure.
  6. While the beans are cooking, thinly slice a baguette and toast the slices to make your crostini.  Use a toaster oven or simply toast in the oven at 350 degrees for 2 minutes on each side (or until slightly browned).  Timing will depend on how thinly you slice your bread.
  7. Remove the beans from heat and pour them into a serving bowl.  
  8. Add the remaining 1/4 extra virgin olive oil, freshly chopped parsley, lemon juice, and pepper to taste. Toss to coat and serve warm with the toasted crostini.
