  • Half of a chorizo sausage diced.
  • ¼ of a cup of canned cooked cannellini beans (drained and rinsed)
  • ½ a tsp of chopped fresh rosemary you can use dried if preferred
  • ½ a tsp of smokey paprika
  • 1/3 of a cup of tomato passata
  • 1 tsp of maple syrup
  • 1 slice of bread of your choice buttered
  • 1 tbsp of grated parmesan cheese


  • Grease a deep, single serve ramekin (the one pictured is 12cm diameter x 6cm deep), and add the chorizo sausage.
  • Cover the ramekin with a sheet of paper towel and put it into the microwave. Press the ‘Micro Power/ button once to set the power to 1000 watts, set the timer to 1 minute and press start.
  • Add the cannellini beans, rosemary, smokey paprika, passata and maple syrup. Stir well, and put back into the microwave at 1000 watts for 1.30 (/90 seconds).
  • Remove from the microwave, stir well, and put back in at 1000 watts for a further 1.30 (/90 seconds).
  • Remove from the microwave and season with salt and pepper.
  • Tear the buttered bread and arrange over the top of the bean mixture, butter side up where possible, before sprinkling with parmesan cheese.
  • Return to the microwave (uncovered) and press ‘Grill’ once to get the ‘Grill 1’ setting. Cook in 1-minute intervals, for 3-5 minutes (this will depend on the height and size of your ramekin), checking each minute to see if you’d like it more toasted.
  • Remove and serve immediately.
