Spicy corona beans with charred tomatoes is our new favorite vegetarian meal. Corona beans are so big and pillowy and work perfectly with a spicy broth.

The key to these spicy corona beans is to soak them overnight. If you can’t find corona beans, a can of drained and rinsed cannellini beans will do the trick!

If you’re looking to purchase corona beans, I recommend Rancho Gordo!

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 16 cocktail tomatoes on the vine, preferred
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 yellow onion peeled and diced
  • 6 cloves garlic peeled and minced
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 5 cups water or stock
  • 2 cups corona beans soaked overnight
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For serving:

  • Warm baguette slices
  • Fresh minced parsley

Instructions

Char the tomatoes:

  • In a wide sauté pan, heat the 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Add the tomatoes on the vine and cook for 1-2 minutes. Transfer to the broiler and broil for 5-7 minutes or until the skins begin to char and blister. Return the pan to the stovetop and, using tongs, transfer the tomatoes to a bowl. Once the tomatoes are cool enough to handle, discard the stems. Set aside.

Prepare the soup broth:

  • Return the sauté pan to medium heat and add the butter. Once the butter is melted and frothy, add the yellow onion and cook for 6-7 minutes until softened and beginning to brown. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 45 seconds.
  • Add the crushed red pepper and the reserved tomatoes and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Pour in the water or stock and scrape up any browned bits stuck to the bottom of the pot. Bring to a boil for 5 minutes. Then, reduce heat and stir in the corona beans. Cover and simmer for 1 hour or until the beans are softened but not split open. Taste and season to your preferences.

To serve:

  • Ladle the spicy corona beans into bowls and garnish with minced parsley. Serve the corona beans with warm sliced baguette, if desired. Enjoy!
