1. Wash hands with soap and water.

2. Rinse fresh produce.

3. Position a rack 4 to 6 inches from the broiler and heat the broiler to medium.

4. Place the baguette slices on a rimmed baking sheet and, using 3 tablespoons oil, lightly coat both sides of each slice using a pastry brush. Rub the bread with the garlic halves, transfer to the oven, and toast until light golden brown on both sides, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Season lightly with salt and set aside.

5. Put 1/2 cup oil in a 1-quart saucepan and heat on low until the oil begins to shimmer. Add the sliced garlic and fry in batches, if necessary, until light golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the oil with a slotted spoon and transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Set aside.

6. Combine the beans and their liquid, the remaining 1/4 cup oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, the granulated garlic, and red pepper flakes in another 2-quart saucepan and heat on low heat until warmed through. Put the peppers in a small bowl and toss to combine.

7. Top the baguette slices with 1 tablespoon of the bean mixture, pressing lightly into the bread.

8. Garnish with the chopped peppers and a slice of the fried garlic, and serve.
