Best White Beans

Best White Beans

This is my favorite bean recipe. It’s so simple and yet, somehow, miraculously, so amazingly good.  And shockingly enough, for once it actually came to me via allrecipes.


– 1 tbspn olive oil
– 1/4 large onion, chopped
– 1/2 cup frozen pepper strips (red, yellow, green)
– 1 (15 ounce) can great Northern beans (or any white beans), partially drained but not rinsed
– generous amount of Italian seasoning
– ground cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper


Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in onion, cook until translucent. Stir in peppers, and cook until tender. Partially drain the can of beans, until the top liquid is poured off but there is still liquid in the can. Pour in beans and liquid. Season with oregano, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until beans are heated through and the liquid has boiled down to your desired consistency.

I like to make a double batch of this because it’s so easy and yummy.  An easy 5/5 happy monkeys!
