Ingredients

  • 1 (15 oz.) can chickpeas, drained + rinsed
  • 1 (15 oz.) can cannellini beans, drained + rinsed
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of ground allspice

SAUCE:

  • 2 Tbsps Extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3-4 Tbsps tomato paste
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
  • 2 1/2 cups organic vegetable stock
  • 1 Tbsp white cooking wine

OTHER:

  • 4 oz. fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a medium skillet (10-inch) over medium-high heat, add the olive oil and garlic cloves and sauté until translucent + fragrant, about 1 minute. Add in the halved tomatoes, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, oregano, smoked paprika, thyme, cinnamon, and allspice, stirring everything together until combined.
  • Add in the tomato paste, veggie stock, cooking wine, and stir until combined and color has changed to a red-like color. Let it boil for 1-2 minutes before adding in the chickpeas and cannellini beans, stirring them in.
  • Remove from heat and add the sliced mozzarella cheese atop the bean mixture, spreading it out evenly---slightly tucking them in between the beans if desired.
  • Bake everything in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the sauce begins to bubble.
  • Remove from oven and serve immediately with your favorite side of rustic bread, crackers, etc.
  • Bon Appetit!
