I have read many a time that small white beans can be used in variety of ways with soups, stews, pastas and the like but I was never fully convinced.
I had a 65cent can of small white beans lurking in the cupboard that I must have bought on a whim. Each time I open the damn cabinet they would stare me right in the face shouting, ‘ EAT ME.’
Sunday night my husband an I were exhausted and I had to compile a quick dinner. Trader Joes makes fab burritos that are ready in 6 min and I needed a side. White beans to the rescue. Try the recipe it will knock your socks off:
White Bean Spicy Salad
1 can small white beans
Juice of one lime or lemon
3 heaping Tbsp of salsa
pinch of cayenne pepper
Bag of Romaine Lettuce ( measure according to mouths you have to feed!)
Salt & Pepper
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
Optional: 2 Tbsp shredded cheddar cheese
Combine all ingredients in a bowl sans the romaine. Mix thoroughly. Spoon over lettuce. Tastes even better the second day. YUM!
