I received Speckled Butterbeans in my CSA box this week and we’re having vegan butterbean and tomato ragout. I’ll admit, I’ve never even heard of speckled butterbeans before today. So, I thought I’d make a tomato and butterbean ragout just sort of on-the-fly for Vegan Monday. I ended up with a tomatoey, almost pasta saucey meal. I dig it.
2 C speckled butter beans, raw
Brown onions and garlic in olive oil. Add tomatoes, rotel, tomato paste and butterbeans. Add a bit of water, if necessary, to fully cover and cook your beans. Season to taste. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 25 minutes or until beans are cooked through.
Serve over rice or pasta if desired.
Wow. Seriously delicious. Nice and spicy and super filling. Bonus: ridiculously cheap to make. A definite repeat for a quick and inexpensive family meal.
