Creamy and mild, French flageolet beans are favored for slow-cooked dishes such as cassoulets and stews, because the beans keep their shape but still have a meltingly smooth texture. Here, flageolets hold their own alongside briny olives and crunchy celery. (If you can’t find flageolets, substitute white navy beans or cannellini beans.)
1 | Mix beans, half of olives, garlic, and thyme in large bowl. Fold in 1 Tbs. oil, 21/2 tsp. lemon juice, and lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
2 | Place celery and green onions in small bowl. Add remaining 1 Tbs. oil, remaining 2 tsp. lemon juice, remaining olives, and red pepper flakes.
3 | Spoon 1/2 cup bean mixture and 1/2 cup celery mixture over toasted bread slices.
