Balsamic Beans ★★★★ Prep Time: 0 hr 0 min | Cook Time: 0 hr 0 min | Makes: 1 serving | Difficulty: Easy
1 lb dry beans soaked over night
2 ribs Celery diced small
3 green onions halved and sliced
2 T Tomato paste
1 T dried marjoram
1.5 T yellow mustard seeds
1 head plus 2 cloves Garlic
1 15 oz diced Canned san Marzano tomatoes
.5 c Dried shitaki mushrooms
1 c red Wine
1/3 c balsamic vinegar
3 bay leaves
Directions: I used the ingredients I had on hand so feel free to change it up. For instance a traditional mirepoix would probably work better.
Roast garlic in oven in foil for about 45 mins at 425 degrees.
Sauté celery, 2 cloves chopped garlic and green onion with tomato paste and herbs. Add beans, water, tomato, balsamic, wine, roasted garlic, bay leaves and mushrooms. Boil and simmer until beans are done (depends on type of bean).
Tip: when adding the roasted garlic whisk it in a bowl with some cooking liquid until most of it is dissolved then pour into the pot. Season to taste. Serve with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
