White beans with ham and tomato is a very simple recipe, especially if we use cooked beans. Beans (fabas in Galician) are also known as kidney beans, white beans, etc. In Galicia we normally use the term "beans" and the "Fabas de Lourenzá" are famous for having Protected Geographical Indication. With them I have made this recipe.
As we said, the recipe is very simple if we do not have to cook the beans. So the most difficult thing would be to make the tomato sauce. So, make these White beans with ham and tomato, they’re great!
