Corona beans

Eastside Road, Healdsburg, July 21, 2009--
SURELY ONE OF THE Hundred Plates will be the combination of white beans, white onions, herbs, and olive oil. Today's beans were Coronas, those meaty broad beans I've mentioned here a few times before, easy to store and easy to prepare. Lindsey went out to the garden for some myrtle, marjoram, and tarragon, and chopped them up with a little salt. The onion, sliced thin, went into the hot beans just as they'd about finished cooking; the oil is poured over at serving time, and the herbs sprinkled in. Delizioso.
