If you’re ever stuck with what to make when you want something filling, delicious, and healthy, white beans are the way to go. This recipe for a warm white bean salad has some really bold flavors and textures but won’t weigh you down.


  1. In a dry skillet, toast two tablespoons of breadcrumbs just until they’re fragrant. Put the breadcrumbs in a small bowl to the side and add in several cracks of fresh black pepper and 2-3 tablespoons of Parmesan and mix well.
  2. Over low heat in the same skillet, heat up 1/4 cup of olive oil along with 5 cloves of roughly chopped garlic.
  3. After 30 seconds, add in 1/2 tablespoon of fresh chopped rosemary and cook for another 30 seconds or so.
  4. Finally, add in 2 cans or 3 cups of cooked white beans of your choice and turn the heat up the medium.
  5. While you stir the beans, make sure to use a rubber spatula so the beans don’t break since they have a very fine skin.
  6. Cook the beans with everything for about 3-4 minutes and then add in a handful of whatever greens you have on hand and let them wilt for just 30 seconds or so.
  7. Top the pan off with the breadcrumb mixture and you’re ready to enjoy!
