Fry the onions in a pan with some of the olive oil. After a few minutes, add the chillies and garlic.

Once the onions, chillies, and garlic start to brown, add the beans.

Add the chopped basil and stir well, then add in the tomatoes. Season.

Add half the water, before bringing to the boil then turning down to simmer.

Keep on a low heat, stirring occasionally, topping up with water when needed, until the beans are cooked through.

Spray or drizzle the bread with olive oil then grill until crisp. Load the beans on top, season again if you wish, and garnish with any remaining basil.
