Wednesday: Beans and rice

Not exactly sure where the idea came from, but I somehow ended up in the mood for beans and rice. Luckily we had some dried cannellini beans in the house.

Cook soaked white beans in the minimum amount of water possible (just to cover) with smoked bacon (cut into lardons), onion, bay leaf, rosemary, parsley, and a clove until the beans are tender. Add salt to taste.

For the rice I used the baked rice recipe from La Cucina de Mama.

Together with a green salad this was some very good food. The clove in the beans is a really nice touch.
