Braised Ceci Beans
Possibly my new favorite quarantine activity is reading books ABOUT food, and then recreating dishes I’ve read about! While reading Andrew Cotto’s “Cucina Tipica” I was left salivating by his scene around braised ceci beans. I had never heard of them! But it sounded delicious, and incredibly simple (as cucina tipica usually is!). So I did my best to recreate the dish for dinner that night – and it was SO good! I knew immediately I had to share it with all of you! Rich extra virgin olive oil bathes ceci beans and fresh herbs for a comforting dish that checks ALL the boxes! It’s warming, and soothing, delicious and filling while also being INCREDIBLY healthy and immunity boosting (BONUS given the times!). I’ve been serving it with my focaccia bread and a big fresh salad.
