Any recipe that includes artichokes is usually one that I will adore. And lately any recipe that includes navy beans is one that I will adore. So creamy and perfect – they add a decadent element to any meal. This comes together so fast it is hard to believe that it could be so good.

As I was reaching for the olive oil to give my salad a final drizzle the truffle oil caught my eye. I’m so glad that little bottle was at the front of my cupboard  - the truffle oil made this salad. I’m sure it would have been great with a splash of olive oil but the truffle took it over the top.

Navy Beans & Artichoke Salad adapted from Vegan Yum Yum

Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in sauté pan. Add 1 cup beans, 1 can quartered artichoke hearts and 1 clove roasted garlic. Season with salt and pepper and heat until hot. Serve over greens and sprinkle with truffle oil (or olive oil) and a bit of fresh parmesan cheese.

    I love all kinds of beans, prepared in all sorts of ways.

    The only time I’ve had artichoke is in a dip. A dip that consisted of a lot of cheese. One of these days I’m going to need to try it another way. A healthier way;)
