1) Cook your beans in about 3 litres of water with the thyme, carrot, onion and bay leaf. After 45 minutes of cooking add some salt and prolong the cooking until the beans are easy to mash.
2) Start your oven at 180 degrees Celsius (356F).
3) Strain your beans and finely, mash them. Put this pure on a low heat to dry it out a little bit. Then, cool it down.

5) Line a baking tin with the bread crumbs and pour the bean mixture into it. Bake for 40 minutes.

When the cake is cooked allow it to set for 1 minutes before removing it from the tin. Serve warm with some tapenade or a spiced tomato sauce.
This recipe can be made in advance and frozen.
