Bella Sun Luci Rustic Garbanzo Fettunta


  • 4 large thick slices of crusty Italian bread
  • 2 large whole garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 Tb + 1 tsp Bella Sun Luci Arbequina Olive Oil
  • 2 cup garbanzo beans in sun-dried tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup Bella Sun Luci sun-dried tomato halves or julienne cut in oil
  • 1/4 cup Bella Sun Luci Bruschetta
  • 8 basil leaves, whole
  • 8 rosemary sprigs, 4 of them whole (as shown) and 4 of them chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Serves 4 (as a hearty side dish, or double the recipe for a main course)


  • Cook your garbanzo beans according to the package's instructions (or use canned, a 15-ounce can is fine), drain well then add the chopped rosemary and garlic pieces and heat in a sauce pan.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the 1 Tb olive oil with the bruschetta and sun-dried tomato halves or julienne as well as their oil, then mix into the heated garbanzo beans.
  • Taste and adjust seasoning.
  • Toast or grill the bread.
  • When hot and toasty rub the garlic all over each side. This is the "fettunta."
  • Mince the leftover pieces of garlic and add to the garbanzo beans.
  • Drizzle or brush the 1 tsp olive oil evenly over the 4 slices of bread (1/4 tsp per slice).
  • Top with the garbanzo beans, making sure some of the sun-dried tomato julienne cut are showing on top.
  • Garnish with the remaining rosemary and the basil leaves.
