I made a pot of beans tonight and boy, oh boy are they delicious. I don’t even miss the ham, that’s how good they are.
I started soaking some navy beans this morning before I left for work. When I got home I cut up 3 cayenne peppers and one onion and put them in the pot with the beans. I added some of that minced garlic I bought at Costco. As for the herbs I threw in some fresh oregano, thyme and rosemary. I also added about a cup of chicken stock (you could also use vegetable stock) to the water.
Bring it all to a boil then turn it down to simmer until the beans are cooked. I served it with some whole wheat cornbread. Oh, and let me tell you what I did to the cornbread… in my next post!
