white beans

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.
