Instructions

Get Prepping
1

Trim the carrot (no need to peel), then quarter lengthways. Chop widthways into small pieces.
Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

Fry the Veg
2

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large saucepan on medium-high heat.
Once the oil is hot, add the carrot and sliced mushrooms. Cook, stirring frequently, until softened, 3-4 mins.
Add half the garlic and stir-fry until fragrant, 1 min.
Meanwhile, preheat your grill to high.

Simmer your Ribollita
3

Once the veg has softened, add the chopped tomatoes, chickpeas (including the water from the carton), veg stock paste, Italian style herbs, sugar and water for the sauce (see ingredients for both amounts).
Bring to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer until slightly thickened, 10-12 mins, stirring occasionally.

Ciabatta Time
4

While the stew simmers, mix together the olive oil for the garlic bread (see ingredients for amount), remaining garlic and half the cheese in a small bowl.
Halve the ciabatta and lay them onto a baking tray, cut-side up. Spread the cheesy mixture on top.
When about 5 mins of simmer time remain, grill the ciabatta until the cheese is golden, 5-6 mins.

Finish Up
5

Once thickened, stir the spinach into the stew a handful at a time until wilted and piping hot, 1-2 mins.
Stir through the fresh pesto, then remove from the heat.
Taste and add salt and pepper if needed. Add a splash of water if it's a little thick.

Slice and Serve
6

When ready, cut each cheesy ciabatta into 4 fingers.
Share the ribollita stew between your bowls and sprinkle over the remaining cheese.
Serve with the ciabatta fingers alongside for dipping. Enjoy!
