Sun dried tomato paste has an intense, sweet flavour & a slightly granier texture than ordinary tomato paste. Not all so called sun dried tomatoes are prepared naturally; some are dried in ovens & the resulting flavour is not as good as the genuine article.
Butter beans have a sweet flavour & a soft texture that goes especially well with tomatoes, but you could also use flageolets or haricot beans.
1. Heat the oil in a pan. Add the onion & cook over a low heat, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes until softened.
2. Add the celery & garlic & cook for 2 minutes.
3. Add the butter beans, sun dried tomato paste, stock, rosemary or thyme & a little pepper.
4. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat, cover & simmer gently for 15 minutes.
Serve with: Fresh, crusty bread & plenty of Parmesan shavings for a robust main meal.
