white beans, sausage, spinach & tomato


After loving white beans in my Rustic Herb Dip and as an addition to Butternut Squash Soup I knew that garbanzo beans (my prior favorite) were in a bit of trouble.  I won’t give up on them quite yet but I do want to incorporate their white cousin into my cooking more often. They are creamy beyond belief and my new favorite of the bean family.


Adding them to sausage and tomatoes seemed like a no-brainer, not to mention a quick weeknight meal that would not only be satisfying but healthy. (think protein and fiber)


Saute 1 white onion, chopped in large skillet with 4 cloves garlic, minced. Add sliced sausage (I had 3) and cook until lightly browned. Add in can of diced tomatoes, can of white beans and some spinach (I used 1/2 bag of frozen) and let simmer away for 5-10 minutes. Oh, also add random squirts of sriracha if desired. And if you are like me, add more to your bowl so your mouth is burning. 🙂 Grate some fresh parmesan cheese over top if you wish.

    That looks so rustic! As a fellow sriracha fan, I say the hotter, the better 😉 I don’t think there is any type of food that does not taste better with sriracha!

    Cannelini beans for the white beans??

  2. Yes, cannelini for white beans, I’ve seen so many different names for them I never know which to use!?!?
    Um, yes sriracha is good on EVERYTHING!!! 🙂

  3. my favorite thing about your recipes are how simple the ingredients are! it’s not like you have this laundry list of random bits and pieces that you won’t ever use again. meeee gusta.

    my second favorite thing about your recipes is sriracha. nuff’ said.

    The term “rustic” and white beans usually are in the same sentence as far as recipes are concerned, and that’s one of the many reasons I love white beans. What a perfect warm and filling dish on a chilly night!
