I just made spinach with white beans. The beans came out of a glass jar from Whole Foods, the 365 brand kind. I've never cooked with white beans before, and noticed while I was eating these little worm-looking things, sort of off-white and maybe 1/8-1/4 an inch in size. My girlfriend says they look like part of the beans, which I guess is possible, since the beans got mashed up a bit during cooking. I'm not eating another bite until I find out what they are. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm going to be sick if I ate mealworms or something. Urghhhhh!
The meal was really good otherwise, if anyone can stomach the thought. I adapted the recipe from something on vegweb.com.
1 package frozen spinach
1 can white beans
4 cloves garlic
oregano, thyme, salt, and pepper to taste
A little olive oil
vegan bread (I used Italian style)
Sautee the garlic in the olive oil, add the frozen spinach, cover and let simmer for a few minutes. When the spinach is cooked through, add the beans with liquid and the spices and simmer for an additional few minutes. Tear off some chunks of bread and toss it in to soak up some of the liquid. I added quite a bit of oregano and thyme. Serve on a thick slice of warm bread.
