Recipe: White Beans + Tomatoes

May 26, 2018

This is one of my favorite side dishes. It requires minimal work, but the flavors are always super satisfying. 


Another option: I have also had this as its own entree and added broccoli rabb and crumbled sausage. Lovely!




White Beans + Tomatoes

Serves 2+ | Prep time 15 min | Cook time 20 min



2 tbsp Olive Oil

2 cans small white beans, drained

For tomatoes: either one 12 oz can stewed tomatoes, or 1 plastic container of cherry tomatoes (sliced in half)

3 cloves garlic, smashed

1 shallot, chopped

Salt and pepper to taste


Serving suggestion: drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, top with parsley, add parmesan cheese, and crushed red pepper before serving



1.) In a large pan on low-medium heat, sautee shallot and garlic in olive oil for about 5-8 minutes, until soft, stirring frequently. If you need to add more liquid, add either some water or chicken broth

2.) Add in tomatoes, cook for about 5 mins.

3.) Add in white beans, cook for another 5 mins
