Tuscan White Beans
Tonight's recipe was delicious and super easy.
1 cup chopped sun dried tomatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large-size yellow onion
3 zucchini or summer squash I added yellow crook necks
3 garlic cloves - (I always use the chopped in a jar, so much easier)
3 cups fresh spinach
3 cans small white beans 15 oz
1 cup of water ( I subbed veggie broth)
1/2 teaspoon ground sage
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 teaspoon dried pepper flakes (more was great!)
1/3 cup chopped fresh basil
If the Sun Dried tomatoes are dried, soak in a bowl of warm water while you are preparing other ingredients.
Heat oil in large saute pan add an onion and saute for approximately 5 minutes
add squash and cook for 5 minutes. Then add garlic, spinach , beans tomatoes , water , sage , salt black pepper and red pepper flakes, salt to taste add basil and serve right away.
This was super easy and was great with garlic olive bread toast and Cafe Gratitude's chocolate nut frozen dessert "ice cream" for dessert.
I have so many vegan cook books and am looking forward to sharing the recipes I try , the variations and the creations.
