    Made these gorgeous beans on Election day - everyone is nervous about the outcome this year. So I made my #vegetarian Democracy Sausage Rolls for everyone after we voted (as the local booths don't have veg options for the Democracy Sausages). It's a tradition on election days. Served with a side of onions, and tomato sauce, of course, and these beautiful beans. I used chickpeas a la the alternative. How easy and flavoursome they are. It is a stunning Autumn day and we sat around outside munching and chatting. I like the suggestions in the comments re serving on crostini, and they would go a treat with haloumi. These will become quite regular, I suspect.

    oh my goodness. Made these last night wqith some left over haricot beans (jar); flavours are sensational. so much more than you think. About to eat the left overs with pulled pork and coleslaw.

    I went the long route with these soaking my own dry beans... just don't. I am doubting the efforts are substantial enough to notice. These are fantastic and another recipe to highlight the beauty of preserved lemons.

    Made with cannellini beans (one tin= half recipe) - absolutely outstanding. The flavours are huge but well balanced. Lovely server as a main, a starter or on crostini. Served with grilled manouri - the lactic creamy cheese really complements the beans.
