Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Finely chop the brown onion. Finely chop the celery. Finely chop the red capsicum. Finely chop or grate the carrot (unpeeled). Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Roughly chop the parsley. Drain and rinse the cannellini beans.


Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium high heat. Add the onion, celery, capsicum and carrot and cook, stirring, until softened, 6-7 minutes. Add 1/2 the garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute.


Add the cannellini beans, All-American spice blend, tomato paste and BBQ sauce and stir to combine. Add the passata, salt and water and cook, stirring, until well combined, 2-3 minutes. Season to taste with pepper.


Transfer the bean mixture to a medium baking dish, sprinkle with the shredded Cheddar cheese and bake until thickened and the cheese is melted, 10-12 minutes. TIP: For the low-calorie option, omit the cheese.


While the beans are baking, slice the bake-at-home ciabatta in half lengthways, then slice each half across the diagonal. Place the butter and remaining garlic into a small bowl and microwave in 10 second bursts or until melted. Stir through 1/2 the parsley and season with salt and pepper. Brush the garlic & parsley butter over the cut-side of the ciabatta pieces and place on an oven tray or directly on the wire racks. Bake until golden, 5 minutes. TIP: If you don't have a microwave, melt the butter in a small saucepan.


Garnish the cheesy BBQ baked beans with the remaining parsley. Divide between bowls and serve with the garlic bread.
