Tuscan White Beans with Spinach

Written by chanie on January 8th, 2014

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know that I love to eat out. Which is why I’ll probably never leave Brooklyn. Aside from Israel, New York has got to be the mecca of the kosher culinary world. You’ll find all sorts of restaurants scattered throughout the five boroughs, including Indian, Italian, French and Chinese eateries. Being a foodie-turned-chef, I take inspiration for my recipes from everything around me – especially quality restaurant dishes. When I eat a good dish at a restaurant, I’m bound to whip up my own version in my kitchen (like I did here). This is one such recipe.

  1. I never know what to do with cannellini beans. You just gave me an excellent option to try! Your photos are gorgeous–I don’t think I’ve ever seen a soup look so good!

  2. This is a beautiful pic that does the recipe proud. My wife would love this! New fan here.

  3. The soup looks delicious and warming, and what a great job at styling this too! Where did you get the napkins? I have a tablecloth that they would match perfectly.

    Thanks for sharing it.

      My husband and I ate our way through Cali this summer and while the restaurants were good, I don’t think they compare to New York (Tierra Sur being the exception).
