These beans are even better the next day; the recipe reheats well! An ideal make-ahead dish, served along with good bread and red wine. If you have a slow-cooker hanging around, this recipe is a good excuse to haul it out!
Use what you wish for spices / herbs: parsley, oregano, bay leaves, celery sticks, thyme, marjoram, summer savoury, etc. Use about a tablespoon in total of all herbs / spices.
