cannellini beans

Pasta Fagioli

1 lb. quinoa shells
2 cups cannellini beans
3 celery stalks
2 carrots
1 medium onion
6 cloves garlic
6-8 medium sized tomatoes
Lots of fresh herbs: bunch of basil, oregano, and parsley
or
2-4 tsp. dried basil
1-2 tsp. dried oregano
2-4 tsp. dried parsley
2 tbsp. olive oil
Sea salt and pepper to taste

Steps 1) Cook quinoa pasta as directed.

Greens and Beans

2-3 heads of escarole
1 ½ cups cannellini beans (sprouted of course!)
1 bulb of garlic
2 tbsp. olive oil or steam sauté
Sea salt and pepper to taste

Step 1) Bring the olive oil to a medium heat sizzle, add beans, and cook until lightly seared.

Step 2) Chop the garlic into small coins and cook with the beans until the smell permeates the room, add the escarole and cook until lightly wilted and slightly darker in color—don’t overcook.
