Roasted chicken with braised romano beans and tomatoes
Paleo, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free
Sturdy Romano beans take well to braising. They don’t fall apart the way a more delicate bean might and their flavor only gets better the longer they cook. We love their luxurious texture and the way they soak up all the savory flavors of the tomato-based stew.
