white beans

Just like fresh salmon, canned salmon is loaded with omega-rich fats, which are linked to heart and brain health (plus it has even more calcium than fresh salmon!), which is why I try to make a salmon-centered recipe at least once a week for my family.

I love to serve pale beans like cannellini or baby white limas as a warm salad, dressed with an emulsion of rosemary-and-thyme-infused olive oil, a little of their cooking liquid, and olives.

Serve each half squash filled with a generous scoop of bean soup.

From their sighting early in May and on through to October, fresh white beans known as cocos blancs are part of my Provencal diet. 

In Catalonia, we love our eggs, especially in the form of tortillas, or omelets.
