Quick and Easy: Cannellini Beans with Cheese

From today's Mr. Bento. So simple and easy, yet so good.
  • about 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 plump clove garlic (about 1 tbsp.), minced
  • 1/2 small onion (about 2 heaping tbsp.), minced
  • 3-4 sprigs thyme leaves (about 1/2 tsp.), pulled from stems, plus more for garnish
  • 1 15.5 oz. can cannellini beans
  • Parmesan cheese to taste, grated (used about 2-3 tbsp.)
  • salt and pepper to taste
Drain the beans and rinse them.

Put the olive oil in a small pan over medium heat. Saute garlic and onions till onions are soft and translucent, 3-5 minutes. Add thyme and stir around.

Add beans and cook till they're hot, about 5 minutes. Turn heat to medium-low, then grate cheese into the pot. Stir and cook for a few minutes more, then turn off heat and cover.

Garnish with thyme and serve (in my case, I had it for lunch the next day over rice).
