White beans with Broccoli rabe and Horseradish

White beans with Broccoli rabe and horseradish! Happy December everyone. I thought I would kick this month off with one of my favorite winter vegetables broccoli rabe . If you have never eaten broccoli rabe you are in for a treat, (just tell the kids it’s a vegetable that will make them grow strong like the hulk). It is known as a cooking green due to it’s bitterness and loaded with fiber, minerals and a delicious change to kale. It makes a perfect vessel for the umami loaded sauce and beans.

I was inspired by this recipe from my pantry. The ingredients in the dish are things I make sure I have in my kitchen at all times. From canned beans, to sun-dried tomatoes, to lemons and anchovies. They all add a huge depth of flavor and have a long shelf life.

If your looking for a healthy, quick and delicious dish this is it. Use this bean mixture on top of a perfectly toasted piece of sourdough. Curl up next to the fire for a cozy winter meal.
