As you may remember from my stuffed red pepper post, I do not like beans. I WANT to like beans. So I am always looking for bean recipes in the hopes that one day I will develop a taste for beans.
I found something I just had to try on askgeorgie.com. (In addition to extremely healthy dietitian-created recipes, she posts answers to nutrition questions - you can send in a question and she will answer it.) Going through her recipe archive I found a recipe for Garlic and Rosemary Roasted Cannellini Beans. I love crunchy salty snacks, so I had to try it.
Wow! I was so surprised at what happened here. They came out really well. They are delicious!
I followed the directions. After 40 minutes of roasting they were pretty good. But some of the bigger ones were not crunchy.
I put them back in the oven for another ten minutes or so, and when they came out they were a darker color and much crunchier.
I was standing next to the stove waiting for them to cool down and then I just ate them all.
I will definitely be making these again. Especially if you are going to use the oven anyway, it is a great low-effort snack. I would love to experiment with other types of beans and flavors. Maybe some southwestern-flavored beans?
