Wonder of Venice beans with parsley and garlic

I don't like to boil beans, I rather stew them slowly. For this recipe I just sizzled some garlic with olive oil, then I added the beans (washed and topped and tailed) and then cooked them on low with the lid on, adding just a tiny bit of water and a pinch of salt. They take about 20-30 minutes. In the meantime I chopped some garlic, parsley and salt, and then added this mixture to the beans once they were cooked. So simple, and the taste is so good!

  1. Very nice recipe! I love tàccole (that's the way I've always called them) but always had them stewed with some tomato sauce: yummy but quite nothing compared to this. Will surely try it in the future!
