Queen Butter Beans with Thyme Gremolata
Queen Butter Beans with a Thyme Gremolata
1 onion, diced
2 fresh thyme sprigs, leaves removed and roughly chopped
1 lemon, zested
1 garlic clove, grated
2 slices of chunky bread, such as sourdough or ciabatta
1 x 700g jar of Bold Bean Co Queen Butter Beans (or 2 x 400g tins)
Make the Breadcrumbs
Toast the bread until crispy. Place the toast onto a cutting board, and using a sharp knife, chop the toast into breadcrumbs. Set aside.
Make the Gremolata
In a small bowl, place the lemon zest, zested garlic and thyme. Mix together and set aside.
Finish the Beans and assemble
In a pan with some olive oil, slowly cook the onion with a pinch of salt until soft and sweet. Add the beans with all of their bean stock and bubble for a further 5 minutes.
Scoop a good portion of beans into the bowls and drizzle a blob of olive oil over the top. Sprinkle the beans with the breadcrumbs and the gremolata and serve warm.
