Spicy white bean stew

I finally caved and got a New York Times Cooking membership (which is sadly a separate 5 dollar subscription from the New York Times - something I also have 😅).

Honestly, it’s so worth it. Bálint and I both have been using this app nearly daily for the past few weeks.

The app is easy to use. It also is free from blog content, unnecessary amounts of photos as well as ads. This is something Bálint in particular loves. He hates scrolling to the bottom of a long blog post for a recipe.

This Spicy White Bean Stew is one of their recipes and it’s a new favorite of mine.

I added Fuet - Spanish dried sausage, baby kale instead of broccoli, and avocado.

How long does it take to make?

Is the subscription 5 USD a month? The regular NYT subscription is 8 USD a month, but the games, puzzle and crossword subscription is 14 USD a year so either month or year would be possible for the cooking app. One sounds almost too cheap and the other to steep (for me). 🙂

About 30-45 minutes if you use beans from a can/box. I used dried beans so I started by soaking the beans overnight and cooking the next day for 2.5 hours.

Okay. Does it taste better with dried and cooked beans or is it just a different way of making it?

I prefer the dried beans. They are cheaper. And I usually always have them in the cupboard because they come in large bags. However, I use boxed beans in a pinch if I forgot to soak them overnight or don’t have time to cook something for several hours.
