Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic and carrot; cook and stir until onion is tender and transparent. Stir in the sugar, red pepper and mushrooms and continue to cook until onion is browned.
  3. Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and stir to blend. Cook for 1 minute then mix in the water and tomato paste. Season with basil and thyme. Mix in the beans and season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a greased casserole dish.
  4. Pour the remaining oil into a shallow dish. Dip one side of each slice of bread in the oil, then arrange on top of the casserole with the oiled side up. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the top.
  5. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until the bread and cheese are toasted.

This recipe is wonderful! Instead of bread I topped it with polenta - I just bought the sort of pre-made polenta in a tube, then sliced it and layered it on top of the bean and vegetable mixture. The polenta browned up nicely in the oven, and it was great. My boyfriend is a vegetarian, so I'm always on the lookout for recipes that we'll both enjoy. This one was hearty and savory, and we loved it. I think the spices could also be easily altered to make it a "southwestern" bean casserole - next time I'll try chili powder and cumin and top it with cornbread mix. Wonderful!

My husband really liked this, and it's easy to make. I used a 7x11 casserole. I have no idea how you can fit 1/2 a pound of bread on the top, though. Next time I will try it with mashed potatoes instead of bread.

Good recipe for a cold night. I did swap out the french loaf for a whole wheat bread and added some romano with the parmesan.
