  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • fresh or dried chilli pepper or flakes
  • 500 g fresh spinach leaves
  • 1 can of cannellini beans

Instruction Spinach, beans and sun-dried tomatoes skillet

  • In a large pan or pot, heat the oil. Add crushed garlic and fresh, dried or flaked chilli pepper to taste. Cook everything for a minute over medium heat, being careful not to burn the garlic.
  • Rinse the fresh spinach leaves and remove hard stalks if necessary. Add the leaves (without drying them) into the pan, lower the heat and cover with the lid.
  • Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the spinach softens. Remove the lid, raise the heat and add the previously drained and rinsed borlotti beans and half a teaspoon of salt. Continue cooking on high heat for another 2 – 3 minutes, stirring often.
  • Add sun-dried tomatoes, previously drained of their oil, and choped into smaller pieces. Also add 1 – 2 tablespoons of Taggiasca or Leccino olives.
  • Mix, taste and adjust with more salt or spiciness if necessary.
  • Cook until the liquid from the spinach almost completely evaporates and until the beans begin to break down, creating a cream. Serve immediately.
