½ medium sized onion, very finely diced
2 garlic cloves
2 x 400 gram tins of cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
zest of 1 lemon
1 cup vegetable stock
¼ cup cream (I favour using organic cream)
1 zucchini, trimmed and sliced into very thin rings
⅓ cup walnuts, chopped roughly
sea salt and cracked black pepper
olive oil for sautéing
Heat a generous glug of olive oil over a medium heat. Add garlic and onion and sauté until tender and translucent.
Add the cannellini beans, rosemary, thyme, lemon zest and stock. Simmer for ten minutes. Add the zucchini and cook for 1 minute. Stir through the cream and cook for a further minute. Taste and season with sea salt and cracked black pepper.
Sprinkle walnuts over the top and serve immediately alongside some steamed green vegetables.
