The NY Times published a list of their 21 most popular recipes on Instagram. One was for a Cheesy White Bean-Tomato Bake, a SUPER SIMPLE recipe that takes less than 15 minutes to prep and only 25 minutes total. Loving the idea of it, we decided to make it our own.
In our version, we added kale to make it a main dish for Cindy (vegetarian) and a side dish for Eric (omnivore with vegetarian leanings), our Tikka Masala spice blend to lend a little smoky goodness, and pepper jack cheese (ignore the bag of cheese in the photo...although, the Mexican cheese works just fine as well) to give it a little kick. (This dish would also be delish with our Ras El Hanout blend with mozzarella cheese.)
