Ingredients:

  • 250 gr medium beans
  • 300 gr Feta cheese
  • 4 spoons mayonnaise
  • 80 ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lemon (juice)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Sliced bread

Preparation

Soak the beans on the previous night in water. On the following day remove them from the water and throw it away. Place them in a pan with the garlic, cut in half, and boil them until they soften. Then remove them from the water and allow them to cool (not completely).

Mix them in a blender, adding the feta cheese, the oil, and the lemon juice. Mix until they turn into a smooth paste and pour them into a bowl.

Add the mayonnaise and stir well with a spoon. Add salt to taste.

Place the mix in the fridge and let it rest for a few hours.

Spread olive oil on sliced bread. Place them in the oven for 10 minutes at 180o C.

Serve the bread slices with the bean mixture spread on them.
