Tuscan Beans – Easy, quick side dish

Tuscan White Beans –   This simple side dish can be ready in less than 10 minutes. Perfect for those meals where other parts of the dinner are slightly more complex.


  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil (1 teaspoon for cooking and 1 teaspoon for drizzling when serving)
  • 1 garlic clove, smashed and roughly chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 plum tomato, chopped (This is optional, mostly for color)
  • 1 sprig of fresh Rosemary (not dry), removed from stem and coarsely chopped
  • 1 can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • ½ cup Chicken Broth
  • Salt to taste
  • Parmesan Cheese (optional)

Cannelini Beans with Rosemary


  • Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat
  • Add the smashed garlic and red pepper flakes, cook 1 minute.
  • Add chopped tomato (if using) and fresh chopped rosemary and cook 2 minutes.
  • Add drained & rinsed cannellini beans and cook, 5 minutes.
  • Add chicken broth as needed as the beans cook, so beans are not dried out and sticking to the skillet. (Chicken Broth adds a depth of flavor and salt)
  • Broth should be partially absorbed by the beans as it cooks down.
  • Season with salt (if needed).
  • Sprinkle with Parmesan (optional) and drizzle with olive oil.
