Crispy confit garlic with creamy butter beans

1 bulb of garlic, cloves peeled 
1 red chilli, sliced 
Peel the zest of one lemon 
Enough Extra Virgin Olive oil To cover 
1 700g jar @boldbeanco with the bean stock 
2 TB Garlic oil from above 
200g Purple sprouting Broccoli (or normal) 
Parsley, 2 handfuls chopped
pitted black olives, 2 handfuls chopped
Fresh red chilli chopped to taste
Black pepper 
1/2 a lemon juiced 
All that confit garlic sprinkled on top! 
Pop the garlic into a small saucepan with the lemon zest strips, the red chilli chopped and cover with olive oil. Use enough oil to submerge the garlic. Poke in a few stems of rosemary. Put this on a low heat to gently confit, approximately 20-30 minutes until tender in the middle. 
Strain the oil from the cloves , this garlic oil can be used in any other recipe to enhance garlic flavour! 
Pour the beans and their juices into a pan and place on a medium heat for 10-15 minutes to thicken and release the starchy goodness. Add the 2 TB of Garlic oil , and mash the beans roughly with the back of a wooden spoon. Stir in the chopped Broccoli and simmer with the lid on until tender, about 3 minutes. 
Stir in the chopped parsley, chillies and olives, and season to taste. Squeeze over the lemon juice, spoon the garlic confit through the beans and drizzle with extra garlic oil.
