Ingredients
  • Two 1-pound loaves French bread, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 bunch broccoli rabe
  • One 15-ounce can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and smashed
  • 1 shallot, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh oregano leaves
  • 8 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Arrange the bread slices in a single layer on a baking sheet and drizzle with the olive oil. Transfer to the oven and toast until just crisp, about 10 minutes. Set aside.

  • Preheat the broiler; position a rack in top third of the oven.

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the broccoli rabe and cook until al dente, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain and rinse with cool water.

  • Transfer the broccoli rabe to a food processor and add cannellini beans, garlic, shallot, oregano, and salt and pepper to taste. Pulse to roughly chop. Transfer to a bowl, add 2 to 4 tablespoons of the goat cheese, and bind together with hands.

  • Top each piece of toast with a heaping tablespoon of the beans-and-greens mixture and then with about 2 tablespoons of the remaining goat cheese. Broil until the cheese is golden, about 2 minutes. Serve warm.
