Post your Bean recipes!

I made the white chili Roselle posted here and realized we really need more beans in our meals. They are cheap and the fiber is great for us.

So anyone have any good bean recipes?

Here is one we love at our house and bonus cause its in the crockpot

Tuscan Pork with White Beans

2 cups dried navy beans
1 TBS fresh sage divided
2 tsp salt divided
1 tsp ground fennel
8 cloves of garlic minced and divided
2.5 lbs pork shoulder (or Boston butt)
4 cups of water
2 bay leaves

1. Rinse beans and cover with 2 inches of water, soak for 8 hours.
2. Combine half of salt, sage and garlic in bowl. Rub on the pork and place in crock pot.
3. Combine remaining ingredients (beans, salt, sage, fennel, 4 cups water, bay leaves) and pour over pork in crock pot.
4. Cook on low for 8 hours. Discard bay leaves and enjoy!
