Simple Shelling Beans

Friday, July 17, 2015

1 pint shelled fresh cranberry beans
1 large sprig fresh thyme
Several garlic cloves (to taste), crushed
Parmesan rind (if you have some -- this really makes the dish!)
Extra virgin olive oil

Rinse the shelled beans and place in a wide shallow pot. Cover with 2-3 cups of water and a healthy glug or three of olive oil. Toss in the crushed garlic and thyme sprig. Turn the heat on medium and bring to a lively simmer. Turn down the heat and cover, letting the beans bubble away until tender but not falling apart. Give them a stir from time to time. Once the beans are tender, remove the lid and let simmer a bit longer to reduce the liquid to your liking. Season generously with salt and pepper. Excellent served with toasted Kalamata Olive Bread slathered with plain chevre. Read More...
