warming onion & white bean bake

warming onion & white bean bake

This is wonderful reheated the next day so feel free to make it in advance and keep it in the fridge. I’ve used an aged cheddar here because it has a nice balance of cheesy flavour and good melting qualities but you
could use your favourite melting cheese. Or even some parmesan would do the trick. Serve with a green salad.
serves 4
5 onions, sliced into half moons
4 sprigs thyme, leaves picked
3 cans white beans (400g / 14oz, each), drained
1/2 cup chicken or vegetable stock
150g (5oz) grated cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 200C (400F).
Heat a generous glug of olive oil and a large frying pan or
skillet and cook onion, stirring occasionally over a medium
heat until onion is melting and deep golden. Add more oil
as you need it. Will take about 25 minutes. Add thyme to onion and season.
In a medium heatproof dish layer about a third of the
onions. Add half the beans and a little cheese. Repeat until all the ingredients have been used, finishing with the
cheese. Pour the stock over and season. Bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes or until golden and bubbling.
