Saucy White Beans With Spinach

What You Need:

-Garlic -Olive Oil -Grape Tomatoes -Cannellini Beans -Water

-Dried Oregano -Black Pepper -Parmesan -Spinach -Salt


Mince garlic. Add olive oil to a large skillet and heat over medium. Add the minced garlic and sauté for about one minute, or just until the garlic becomes really fragrant.

Sauté Garlic


Add grape tomatoes (sliced in half) to the skillet and stir to combine.

Add Tomatoes


Drain white beans, then add them to the skillet. I do not rinse the beans because the little bit of residual starchy liquid (called aquafaba) helps create the sauce.

Add Beans


Also add dried oregano, freshly cracked pepper, and water. Stir to combine, then allow the beans to come up to a simmer.

Add Herbs And Water


Simmer the beans, stirring occasionally, until the tomatoes begin to break down and the liquid has reduced into a light sauce.

Simmer Beans


Add grated Parmesan to the skillet. Stir the Parmesan into the beans until it has melted in. If the sauce becomes too dry, you can add a little more water to loosen it up a bit.

Add Parmesan


Add loosely packed fresh spinach to the skillet. Stir the spinach into the beans and allow the spinach to wilt.

Add Spinach


Once the spinach is wilted, give the beans a taste and add salt, pepper, or other seasonings to taste.
