White beans with ham and tomato

Published originally in lareira.net by Marta on 08/06/2010

The white beans with ham and tomato are a very simple recipe, especially if we use cooked beans. The beans are known as fabas (in Galician) and habas, judías blancas, habichuelas (in Spanish). In Galicia we usually use the term “fabas” and the “Fabas de Lourenzá” that have Protected Geographical Indication are famous. With them I have made this recipe.

As we said, the recipe is very simple if we do not have to cook the beans. Then, the most complicated thing would be to make the tomato sauce. So, make these White beans with ham and tomato, they’re great!

If you want to know how I cook the beans, you can watch the video of Beans with octopus.
