Traditional white beans in softness, a recipe to be tested!

Experience Alexandra - Responsable Communication By Alexandra - Responsable Communication, the 08 February 2019

When the winter is installed well, I like to put myself in stoves to prepare soups. Often, it gives rise to some grimaces at table, then I try to propose novelties to vary the pleasures!

To the market of Niort, I made some reserves of traditional white beans. I knew that I intended to cross a long moment to shell them … I have not heard about a machine yet allowing to make it in a wink of eye! Thus, a little elbow grease and especially the insurance to be delighted to be able to taste some beans in the heart of the winter.

Finally, I did not wait for a long time to defrost a first pocket and test a recipe which I imagined and that here is! A softness of traditional white beans easy to realize and especially express.

My beans being already cooked in a traditional way decorated with some shallots, I simply mixed them with a small bottle of whipping cream. Put all the bottle, it will bring more unctuousness and two ladles of broth to avoid that it is too thick. Not liking the milk, I did not appreciate either the aspect of my soup. Then, I made, in the frying pan, some slices of ham burn out of Vendée cut in strip, chiselled some stalks of chive of the garden, the whole arranged harmoniously on my softness warmed over a low heat. A small drop of truffle oil to perfume and a small slice of bread of countryside rubbed in the garlic: the tour was played!

I was afraid that it is a little bit floury, finally not! As a result, small ramekins were fast savoured.

Now, in your turn!

Know that you can also draw your inspiration from two available works in the shop of the Tourist Office, the street Brisson, in Niort: " the cooking of the Charente and Poitou " with the recipe of traditional white beans cooked in onions and in carrots either " The cooking from Poitou " with the recipe of beans in the maraîchine, in the cream...

Enjoy your meal
