Cannellini beans in mint marinade

December 27, 2006 at 1:14 pm (Beans, The Vegan Gourmet, unrated)


This recipe is from the Vegan Gourmet, expanded 2nd edition.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • fresh black pepper
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh mint leaves
  • 3 1/2 cups cooked cannellini beans, drained

Mix the marinade together, toss in the beans, and allow to marinate at room temperature for several hours.  Serve at room temperature.

Makes 10 appetizer size servings.

My notes:

I thought this recipe made way too much dressing for the amount of beans.  It was too strong tasting for me, although the basic flavor was pleasant.  Derek liked it a lot.
