Cannellini Beans with Tomatoes and Plant Based Sausage

Dinner, Lunch, Main Dish, Vegan

If you like bold and spicy flavors, then you have to try this Cannellini Beans with Tomatoes and Plant Based Sausage savory dish.  The cannellini beans have an earthy flavor and a meaty texture.  The tomatoes provide a great source of lycopene, and the plant based sausage was spicy and delicious.  I added in some fresh spinach and roasted garlic to make this savory dish.

I love to buy my fresh veggies, plant based meat substitutes, and other key recipe ingredients  from Whole Foods MarketWegmans and Sprouts Farmers Market.  I used the Beyond Meat brand of plant based sausage.  If you would like to purchase this cast iron pan, then click my Shop Page or this cast iron pan link.
