Sauteed White Beans

Sauteed White Beans

This recipe is a great side dish by itself. If you are in need of an inexpensive side that is quick and easy to make, this is a great one. One of my sons asked for an extra helping of beans when we had this. 

Sauteed White Beans:
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (I only used 1)
1/2 white or yellow onion, finely chopped
Kosher salt
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 cup white wine
1 1/2 cups cooked navy beans
2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano leaves (or 2 teaspoons dried)
Freshly ground black pepper

In a small pan, over medium heat, add the oil. When the oil is hot add the onion with a pinch of salt and saute until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cumin and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Raise the heat and add the white wine. Cook until the wine has reduced by half. Stir in the beans and oregano and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook gently for 15 minutes. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve.
