A heaping 1/2 cup of dried beans = one 15-ounce can of beans
soaked Great Northern... 6 min followed by NPR
  • White Beans: Choose beans labeled Great Northern, Cannellini, or White Kidney for this recipe. The cooking times will vary slightly, depending on the type you choose.
  • Garlic: One of the healthiest, cheapest flavor enhancers around!
  • Bay Leaves: A classic flavor enhancer, especially in the Mediterranean region. Use dried bay leaves for a stronger flavor. If you can only find fresh bay leaves, though, double (or even triple) up.
  • Italian Seasoning: A multipurpose blend of herbs and spices, it’s a great addition to your spice cabinet. If you prefer, feel free to mix up your own homemade mix instead.
  • Rosemary: Rosemary and white beans are a classic combination for a reason. Though rosemary is typically included in Italian seasoning blends, we’re adding a bit extra!
  • Sage: It’s an antioxidant powerhouse. While it’s part of the same family as rosemary and oregano, it has a flavor all its own. You might know sage best from holiday favorites, like stuffing and sage butter. However, in the Mediterranean, it’s more common to find it in healthy herbal teas.
  • Kosher Salt: A bit of salt goes a long way in a pot of beans and helps to flavor the beans from the inside out. It also helps them to keep their shape.
  • Lemon (optional): Lemon is super healthy and brightens these beans up beautifully. Moreover, lemons, and other foods high in vitamin C, help increase the amount of iron that gets absorbed from beans.
