Recipe ingredients and directions:
Red Beans w/ Pecans, Saffron
1 small can red beans
dry red wine
Drain a small can of red beans. (Pintos may substitute.) Save
the juice in a small bowl and add a small amount of crumbled saffron
to it so it marinates. Not too much, you want the taste to be
subtle, not dominant.
Saute garlic in olive oil for a little bit, along with pecan halves
and some crushed red chiles.
Add the drained beans and cook so the flavors mingle. Add quite
a bit of oregano and less thyme and a pinch of black pepper. Add
some dry red wine, don't be too shy.
Add in the saffron-flavored bean liquid and cook a few more minutes.
The consistency should be thin but not like soup.
Serve over whole wheat spaghetti. Brown rice might also work.
