1 tbsp olive oil
1 can butter beans (the smaller variety is preferable)
2 cups raw chopped spinach
1/4 cup finely diced red onion
2-3 cloves of garlic finely diced
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp cumin
a large splash of soy sauce
a squirt of sriracha (to taste)
salt and pepper (to taste)
1 tsp sesame oil
Good food is the best. Dishes are the worst. This is a one pot recipe.
Heat olive oil in a medium sized pot on medium-low heat until it shines (about 1 minute). Add onion and sauté for about a minute.
Throw in the garlic and sauté for another minute or two, until the onion starts to become translucent.
Add the full can of beans and season with paprika and cumin. Cook for about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the beans start to soften in the heat.
Stir in the soy sauce, and add the spinach. Cover and cook on low heat until the spinach wilts, about 2 minutes.
Squirt in some sriracha to taste (I put about a tablespoon), and add salt/pepper to taste. Be careful not to over salt – the soy sauce should take care of most of your salty needs.
Turn off the heat, and stir in the sesame oil. Serve with your favorite bread (I used a piece of Pain de Seigle from Balthazar Bakery).
