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

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. 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.
  3. Preheat the broiler; position a rack in top third of the oven.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
