Spanish Beans in Tomato Sauce with Focaccia


  • 4 dl plain white flour
  • 1/4 pack dry yeast
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 dl lukewarm water
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 3/4 x yellow onion
  • 1/2 x red chili
  • 400 g diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 dl olive oil
  • 150 g white beans
  • 25 g spinach


  1. Start by making the focaccia. Mix together flour, dry yeast, half salt and lukewarm water in a bowl, and leave the dough to rise for about 45 minutes. The dough should be quite runny.
  2. Mince the garlic, onion and chili and add to a frying pan with a little olive oil. Cook on medium heat until the onion looks translucent.
  3. Add diced tomatoes and cook for about 15 minutes.
  4. Grease a baking sheet with a little olive oil and add the focaccia dough. Use your fingers to form holes in the dough, and drizzle with olive oil and the remaining salt.
  5. Bake the focaccia in the centre of the oven at 225 degrees celcius for approximately 20 minutes.
  6. Finally add white beans and spinach to the tomato sauce and cook for another five minutes. Season with salt at the end.
  7. Serve the Spanish beans with steaming hot focaccia.
  8. Note: if you're following the weekly menu, set aside half of the focaccia for later this week.
