  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 large cloves of black garlic , thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons of tomato paste
  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) white beans (such as cannellini or Great Northern), drained and rinsed
  • ½ cup boiling water
  • Garlic scapes salt (or normal salt) and black pepper
  • ⅓ pound mozzarella, coarsely grated (about 1⅓ cups)


For tasting:

Once the gratin is cooked and ready to be served, add a final touch that will make all the difference. Just before serving, lightly drizzle the gratin with a drizzle of cold-pressed sunflower oil or extra-virgin olive oil. This little touch will not only add a burst of flavor but also an extra dimension in terms of texture and aroma. Whether you choose sunflower oil for its lightness and delicate flavor or olive oil for its Mediterranean character, this final addition will enhance the dish and perfectly complement the flavors of the gratin.
