Warm White Bean Salad
|I served this warm white bean salad at a dinner party and more than half the guests wanted the recipe. It is absolutely delicious and very easy to make.|
|Time||20 minutes (once beans are ready)|
|Directions||Combine beans, tomatoes, cheese or tofu, and vinegar in the bowl and set aside.
Heat oil over high heat, add onion and salt, and sauté for 2 minutes. Stir in carrots, celery, garlic, rosemary, and paprika and sauté 1 minute. Add water, cover, and simmer about 2 minutes, until veggies are just tender.
Add to beans, mix well, taste, and adjust seasonings.
Toss with arugula and serve warm.
