Braised White Beans

Braised white beans (My ABSOLUTE favorite white bean recipe) on crusty bread topped with crunchy scallions! The garlic chunks melt in your mouth and crunchy scallions take it to the next level. 

You can make a batch of beans for the week, and then assemble your toast in 2 minutes when ready to eat. This bean recipe is inspired by the NY Times creamy braised white beans! See full recipe below <3
