Mediterranean Baked White Beans

While I am not a vege, nor a vegan. I can appreciate a vege dish. Such was the case this morning on visiting a new blog for me, The Detox Diva. The current post, Mediterranean Baked White Beans, struck me as awesome.

Just look at this dish.

For me, there is only one thing missing, I love white beans with seafood. A grilled fish or something like squid, mussels, prawns or lobster would make that perfect. Of course, there would have to be a suitable white wine, a Chardonnay, or Sauvignon Blanc, both excellent with seafood.

Mouth is watering at the mere thought, and I haven’t even had breakfast yet.

  1. Oh how cool you liked this so much to post it!! I think prawns or lobster would be fabulous… it even goes with Mediterranean spiced chicken…. And yes, a good chardonnay or maybe even a pinot grigio.

    • >TDD, Liked it, I loved it. Yes, the chicken would be good, and I agree with the pinot grigio, with chicken I would add a Riesling to the list. I was worried that you would take umbrage at me by adding ‘meats’ to the dish.

      AV 🙂

    What an interesting addition … before I was a veg, I cooked beans but never thought of adding fish or seafood. Would you just lay the fish in towards the end of cooking? The wine … nice … even us veges could wrap our brains around that one. 🙂

    • >SF, I’d grill the fish separately and lay on top. Squid rings, mussels, shrimps, etc could be cooked in or separate. As for the wine, I’m sure you could. 🙂
