Tuscan White Beans


1 pound dried great northern beans
6 cups cold water
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage
2 garlic cloves, minced
salt and pepper
additional olive oil

Cooking Instructions

Sort through the beans, rinse, drain and then place in a large saucepan. Add cold water to cover by several inches and leave to soak overnight.

Drain the beans and return to the saucepan. Add the 6 cups of cold water, 1/4 cup of olive oil, chopped sage and garlic. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the beans are just tender but not falling apart (45 minutes to 1 hour.) Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Using a slotted spoon, transfer the beans to a pre-warmed bowl. Top with additional olive oil.

Makes 6 servings
