In New Orleans, white beans seem to take a back seat to red beans. Here is a quick soup using the tasty white bean.
3 tablespoons Vegetable Oil
1 cup Onion, chopped
1/2 cup Celery, chopped
1/2 pound Tasso, chopped
1/2 pound Andouille, cut into 1/4-inch slices
4 slices Bacon, chopped
3 cans Blue Runner White Beans
32 ounces Chicken stock
1 can Rotel
Creole Seasoning to taste
Heat the oil in a large heavy pot over medium heat.
Add the onions, celery, tasso, andouille, and bacon, and cook, stirring, until the onions are soft and lightly golden, 5-7 minutes. Add the beans, stock and Roetl. Stir to blend. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season to taste. Skim off any oil that. has risen to the surface, then serve hot.
