Tuscan White Beans w/ Spinach and Sun Dried Tomatoes

Introduction

Vegan white beans with sun dried tomatoes, sage, basil and spinach. Vegan white beans with sun dried tomatoes, sage, basil and spinach.
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    Onions, raw, 1 large
    Garlic, 3 cloves
    Olive Oil, 1TBL

    Beans, white, 4 cup
    Spinach, frozen, 1 package
    Sun Dried Tomatoes, 1 cup
    Basil (fresh) 1 cup leaves
    Sage (fresh) 5-7 leaves

Directions

For me nothing beats fresh beans so I soak them during the day and cook them in the crock pot overnight. Otherwise just use a large (family size) can of white beans juice and all.

Brown onion and garlic in olive oil. Meanwhile chop up sun dried tomatoes and then add to pot. Add beans and spinach to pot. Generally I just throw the spinach in frozen.

Add herbs and if you don't have fresh herbs use dried but reduce accordingly. (1 teaspoon of the dried herb = 1 tablespoon of the fresh) Personally I wasn't a big fan of sage but it really works in this recipe and now I have a bit growing in my little perennial herb garden.

Serve this over pasta or with bread if you like. If you're vegetarian and bit of grated cheese is nice. I skip all that and just enjoy this by itself.

Makes about 8 one cup servings.
