From soups to standout mains, here are nine amazing ways to use your pantry stash of canned white beans.
1. White Bean Huevos Rancheros
This is a lighter take on classic huevos rancheros, which can include plenty of refried black beans. In his version, Neal Fraser uses simmered whole white beans; here, the beans are mashed with ham to form the base of the dish, then piled with corn tortillas, fried eggs and queso fresco before broiling. A warm tomato salsa tops it all off.
2. White Beans with Clams
Here, beans are paired with shellfish in a light Basque stew, which makes a tasty first course or simple main dish.
