I discovered this recipe last summer and it was a big hit with Velo & me, but the kids did not like it, of course. I buy goat cheese at Costco, but I am pretty sure you can find it in the Adult Cheese Section (XXX) (lol) at any grocery store.
Warm Beans With Herbed Tomatoes & Goat Cheese
3 Medium Ripe Tomatoes, seeded and chopped (1 1/2 cups)
1/4 cup snipped fresh basil
1/4 cup snipped fresh oregano
2 green onions, sliced (1/4 cup) (I use chives because I grow them in my garden along with the basil and oregano)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 15 ounce can small red beans or kidney beans
1 15 ounce can great northern beans or navy beans
4 ounces semi-soft goat cheese or feta cheese, crumbled (1 cup)
Fresh basil sprigs (optional)
In a medium bowl combine tomatoes, fresh basil, fresh oregano, green onions, garlic, salt and pepper. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes to 2 hours.
In a medium saucepan combined undrained red or kidney beans and undrained great northern or navy beans. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 2 minutes or till heated through. Drain.
To serve, toss warm beans with tomato mixture. Sprinkle cheese over bean mixture. If desired, garnish with fresh basil. Serve warm. Makes 4 servings.
