After loving white beans in my Rustic Herb Dip and as an addition to Butternut Squash Soup I knew that garbanzo beans (my prior favorite) were in a bit of trouble. I won’t give up on them quite yet but I do want to incorporate their white cousin into my cooking more often. They are creamy beyond belief and my new favorite of the bean family.
Adding them to sausage and tomatoes seemed like a no-brainer, not to mention a quick weeknight meal that would not only be satisfying but healthy. (think protein and fiber)
Saute 1 white onion, chopped in large skillet with 4 cloves garlic, minced. Add sliced sausage (I had 3) and cook until lightly browned. Add in can of diced tomatoes, can of white beans and some spinach (I used 1/2 bag of frozen) and let simmer away for 5-10 minutes. Oh, also add random squirts of sriracha if desired. And if you are like me, add more to your bowl so your mouth is burning. Grate some fresh parmesan cheese over top if you wish.
