This was so damn good that B didn’t even realize it had mushrooms (his alleged arch enemy) in it. I loved this, and since it pretty much contains ingredients that I always have on hand, I will be making this a lot.
White Bean and Warm Spinach Salad with Bacon
Serves 4 as side dish
Inspired by How Sweet It Is
Here’s what I used:
- 4 slices bacon
- 1/2 red onion, chopped
- 8 oz sliced mushrooms
- 1 clove garlic
- 8 oz spinach, stems removed
- 1 19-oz can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed (recommended: Progresso brand)
- salt and pepper
Here’s what I did:
- Cook the bacon in a large saute pan over medium heat until crisp. Remove the bacon and drain on a paper towel, and then chop into small pieces.
- Add the onions and mushrooms and saute until softened and the mushrooms have some color, about 8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Grate in the garlic and add the spinach, season again with a little s&p, and cook for 2-3 minutes until the spinach is wilted. Add in the beans and toss together until the beans have warmed through, a couple of minutes. Top with the bacon and serve.
