  1. 1 cup dried butter beans, soaked overnight and drained
  2. 12 baby potatoes
  3. 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon red miso paste
  4. 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest plus juice of 2 lemons
  5. 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  6. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  7. 1 small onion, finely diced
  8. 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  9. Salt
  10. 2 tablespoons chopped roasted almonds, for garnish
  11. Baby arugula and shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano, for garnish
  1. In a large saucepan, cover the drained beans with 2 inches of water. Cover partially and simmer over low heat until tender, about 3 1/2 hours; add more water as needed to keep the beans covered by 2 inches. Drain the beans; reserve 1/2 cup of the cooking water.
  2. In a medium saucepan, cover the potatoes with water and boil over moderately high heat until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and let cool to warm, then break the potatoes open with your fingers.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the miso paste with the lemon zest and juice. Whisk in the olive oil, then add the garlic, onion and parsley and season with salt.
  4. In a large bowl, toss the beans and potatoes with the reserved bean cooking liquid. Add the miso dressing and toss. Season lightly with salt. Garnish with the almonds, arugula and cheese and serve.
Serve With Toasted bread.
