Pork, White Bean, and Sage Purée

Makes 2 1/2 cups Servings


  • 1 15-ounce can white beans, rinsed, drained
  • 1 garlic clove, smashed, peeled
  • 1 1/4 cups no-salt or low-salt chicken broth
  • 6 ounces boneless pork chop, trimmed, sliced crosswise 1/3-inch thick
  • 1/2 bunch kale, stemmed, rinsed, chopped (about 3 cups)

Recipe Preparation

  • Bring beans, onion, garlic, sage, and broth to a boil in a large saucepan. Reduce heat and simmer until onion is just tender, about 12 minutes. Arrange pork slices in an even layer on top; add kale, cover, and cook until kale just wilts, about 2 minutes. Stir in pork and kale and cook, stirring occasionally, until pork is cooked through, 5–7 minutes. Using an immersion blender, purée until smooth. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 1 month.

Using thin knife, trim silver skin from tenderloin. Mix orange juice, grapefruit juice, cilantro, cumin, oregano, garlic, salt, and hot pepper in gallon-sized zip-top plastic bag. Add pork, close, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 4 hours.

Prepare outdoor grill for direct medium-hot grilling. For a gas grill, preheat grill on high. Adjust temperature to 400°F. For a charcoal grill, build fire and let burn until coals are covered with white ash. Spread coals and let burn for 15-20 minutes.

Lightly oil cooking grate. Remove pork from marinade, drain briefly, but do not scrape off solids. Place on grill and cover grill. Cook, turning occasionally, until browned and instant-read thermometer inserted in center of pork reads 145 degrees Fahrenheit, about 20-27 minutes. Transfer to carving board and let stand 3-5 minutes. Cut on slight diagonal and serve with rice and black bean salad.

33 Braised Meat Recipes to Turn a House Into a Home

Matt Taylor-Gross

When the temperatures drop and snow starts to fall, we’re in full-on braise mode. We’ll braise anything, from chicken to beef to venison, and it’s great every way. Browning meat before simmering it in a little liquid—usually some combination of wine, beer, and flavorful stock—gives incredibly tender, moist, and flavorful results. It works as well for slow-cooked roasts as it does for a quick weeknight meal of chicken in mustard sauce. Here, our favorite recipes for braised meats.

Pork, White Bean, and Sage Purée - Recipes

I love recipes that rely on ingredients that we (should) already have in our kitchen cupboard and fridge.

For instance, I’m never without a few cans of cannellini beans, some fruity extra-virgin olive oil, chili oil or dried sage – and it’s a rare event when I don’t have fresh lemons, garlic and Italian flat leaf parsley in my fridge, as I cook with them all the time.

There’s usually a part-cooked crusty baguette lurking somewhere in my freezer that’s just waiting to be baked, sliced, chunked or dunked, so with all the necessary ingredients in place and 10 minutes to spare, I was able to whip up this little snack in next to no time.

White bean purée is delicious, nutritious and filling and if I’m being greedy, I might eat three or four of these for lunch – but served as an hors d’oeurves, one per person will be plenty.

I make individual *crostini by smearing a small amount of good quality mayonnaise onto thin slices of crusty baguette, then frying them briefly on both sides in a very hot, heavy skillet until they’re golden and crunchy.

Sun-dried tomatoes in oil used to be trendy but were so over-used that I think people tired of them, just as they’re now starting to tire of kale. Sun-dried tomatoes taste every bit as good now as they did when they first emerged on the kitchen scene, back in the 80’s and I never gave up on them. They’re particularly good as a topping here.

You’ll also need a food processor.

White Bean, Garlic Lemon & Fresh Herb Bruschetta


(Makes approx 1.5 cups /360ml of purée)

1 x 15 oz (425g) can of cannellini beans, rinsed and drained

1 small clove of garlic, finely minced

2-3 tablespoons of good extra-v olive oil

A handful of fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley, chopped

The finely minced zest of half a lemon

Sea salt, freshly ground black pepper

Extra chopped parsley, a few small pieces of good old sun-dried tomato in oil and a few drops of chili oil for drizzling

Heat the olive oil in a heavy pan and gently cook the garlic and sage until the garlic starts to turn golden. Add the drained beans and chopped parsley and stir for a few minutes until everything is heated through.

Stir in the lemon zest and season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Allow it to cool slightly then transfer to a food processor along with 2 tablespoons of water – pulse until you have a chunky purée. Adjust the seasoning and transfer to a small dish.

Allow it to sit for about 30 minutes at room temp for the flavors to develop and when you’re ready to serve, spread generously onto the *crostini, then top with a little extra chopped parsley, a piece of sun-dried tomato and finish with a drizzle of chili oil (optional).

It will keep covered in the fridge for several days but bring it back to room temp before serving.

Feeding a gathering? Why not offer a selection of fast and fabulous nibbly-bits to go with the Bruschetta:

Step 3/5

  • 400 g canned white beans
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 150 ml vegetable broth
  • salt
  • colander
  • pot (small)
  • rubber spatula
  • immersion blender

For the bean purée, rinse the beans under cold water and drain. In a small pot, heat the olive oil and sauté the onion. Add beans, vegetable broth, and salt and let cook approx. 5 min., then purée with an immersion blender until smooth. Set aside for serving.

Ragu di Salsiccia & Funghi Misti (Sausage & Mushroom Ragu)

Serves 4

Suggested pasta: Cavatelli, Stracci, Ziti, or Rigatoni


· 2 links Angelo Bean Riesling-infused sausages

· 1 handful dry Porcini mushrooms

· 2 King Eryngii mushrooms sliced

· 1 1/2 cups sliced Cremini mushrooms

· Olive oil to coat the pan

· ¼ cup grated aged Pecorino and/or Parmiggiano

  • Steep the dry porcini in a little cup of hot water to hydrate.
  • Remove sausage meat from casing
  • In a large pan capable of accommodating the pasta, sauté the onions and the skinned sausage meat in olive oil.
  • Add the chopped mushrooms mix.
  • Sauté slowly, add white wine to keep moist.
  • Strain the porcini water and add to ragu.
  • Add a little fresh thyme.
  • Simmer and reduce slowly

Drain the pasta (save some of the water) and add to the sauce. On low heat, stir and add the grated cheese and some of the reserved water until a velvety broth is formed.

If you like to do a pretty presentation: sauté the thinly sliced King mushrooms separately until golden, then decorate each plate with a slice or two and a few curly shavings of Parmiggiano or an older Ontario Gouda and cracked pepper.

Take the time when mixing the pasta with the sauce to reach a creamy texture. The starch content of the pasta water is enough to thicken the broth.

If you like the strong taste of the porcini then add the strained (usually sand is in it) water also.

Use any mushrooms available. Do not be afraid to substitute.

Pasta e fagioli is a straightforward and warming soup that’s definitive of Italian peasant cuisine. Marco Canora passed on this version, which is one of our favorite dishes during the cold winter months. Don’t forget to have the garlic bread in oven and ready to go for your feast.

Game plan: Traditionally, pancetta is included in pasta e fagioli to provide more intense flavor. If you want to use it, add 3 ounces of diced pancetta with the garlic. If you prefer some heat, add a few dried red peppers when you put in the herbs.

For a slacker solution, buy high-quality canned white beans instead of cooking the beans yourself.
