Haricot Beans with Clams

INGREDIENTS (serves 2)

  • 700 gr. clams
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 large onion
  • 1/2 small fresh red chile, chopped
  • 3 or 4 garlic cloves
  • One can of small white haricot beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup of white wine
  • Salt
  • Chopped parsley

METHOD

  1. Throw away any clams that are broken or any ones that do not close when you tap them.
  2. Leave in fresh cold water for 30 mins – they will push out any sand. Rinse them in cold water.
  3. Warm olive oil in a wide pan over low heat. Add the onion and chile, and stir until very soft and beginning to color.
  4. Add garlic and continue stirring for about a minute.
  5. Add the beans, wine, and salt. Cook for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Put the clams on top, cover the pan with a lid and cook over medium heat for 2-3 minutes until the clams open.
  7. Throw away those that do not open. Serve with the sprinkled parsley.
