WHITE BEANS WITH ONIONS AND OVENBAKED TOMATOES

White Beans With Onions and Oven-baked Tomatoes

Life is beginning to feel easier here, the air is warmer and softer, I see blossoming trees all over the place, not to speak about all the new vegetables that are beginning to pop up. Right now I am having a story with thin, fresh Tropea onions, my absolute favourite onion. They come from Tropea in Calabria and are so sweet and flavourful that you can almost eat them like apples and now when I can get the first ones, I have been buying them in loadfuls. Almost. So whatever I make have to have my onions in it which leads to thyme because that is my favourite onion herb that I just have to add whenever I cook/fry/braise them. So when I was thinking about what to add to my white coco beans, a Tuscan variety that is smaller and more tender than the cannellini bean, onions was my obvious choice and then I just felt like eating some oven-baked tomatoes so I added that as well and it turned into a nice and tasty dish. It really did.
