Haut Fast Food

Beans are a poor man's caviar.

I love good food fast and this is my favourite fast comfort food. Truffle oil with canned beans. It's the food version of wearing a ball gown to go bowling. Totally overdressed but fun. You can cook the beans from scratch but how fast is that?

Since a small bottle of truffle oil (60mL/4 tablespoons) equals the cost of about 11 cans of beans you need a swankier name for this dish.

Crude Truffled Vegetarian Cassoulet
1 can of mixed beans, such as chickpeas, kidney beans etc, drained and rinsed
2 tablespoons/30 mL truffle oil (adjust for taste and budget)
Sea salt

Dress beans with truffle oil and sea salt. Serve on bed of lettuce.... cold.

Crude, very very crude.
