    This bean recipe is simple, yet delicious. Make the beans a day in advance, which will allow to the flavours to develop. Eat them as a side dish or on their own as a snack.

    Delicious! A great source of protein with a flavorful twist. I would recommend that you use much less olive oil, as the beans were somewhat overpowered by the taste.  -  21 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Yummy and great for a side dish. I would definitely recommend that you use only enough olive oil to coat the beans really well. I thought that 6 T. was way too much.  -  22 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These beans are SOOOO #$%&@#(#@$^ delicious!!! My photo doesn't do the flavors justice. I only used about 2 Tbsp oil which may be the reason mine didn't come out crunchy. Not sure. But I didn't miss the crunch at all. The seasonings were so great with these beans it didn't matter. This is absolutely going to be on the dinner menu at this house at least once a week from now on. I used Great Northern White Beans, but think it would be good with just about any mild flavored bean. I cannot recommend these enough. Thanks Amanda!  -  16 Mar 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
