  • 1 15-oz can cannellini beans

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1/2 tsp white pepper

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder

  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

  • 1 bay leaf

  • Salt and black Pepper to taste


In a medium saucepan, combine the beans (with all liquid), water, spices, bay leaf, and a small amount of salt and black pepper, stirring until well combine.

Bring to a boil over medium heat, then reduce the heat to low, cover, and allow to simmer for 45 minutes to an hour, stirring often to prevent the beans from sticking to the bottom of the pan. If the beans become too thick, add a small amount of water to thin it out.

After 45 minutes, taste the beans - they should be thickened, but still fairly Loose and flowing. Add salt and pepper if needed before serving.
