Flageolet Beans with Rosemary and Thyme

Photo: Thomas J. Story

Make a big pot of this easy vegetarian dish for a hassle-free dinner or side. There's no need to soak the beans beforehand; they cook to a tender finish straight from the package. You can follow this method for other beans, but you may have to adjust the cooking time depending on bean size and freshness.

Yield: Serves 4 (8 or 9 as a side)
