Marinated radicchio:

  • 1 head of radicchio bottom trimmed and leaves separated
  • 1 lemon juiced and zested
  • 1-2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt to taste


  • 2 teaspoons olive oil for sautéing
  • 1 yellow onion peeled and diced
  • 6 cloves garlic peeled
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper more or less to taste
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 2 15- ounce cans butter beans drained and rinsed
  • ½ cup loosely packed dill leaves or 1 tablespoon dry
  • ½ cup loosely packed parsley leaves or 1 tablespoon dry
  • 1 lemon juiced and zested
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Marinate the radicchio:

  • In a bowl, combine the lemon juice, zest, and extra virgin olive oil. Add the radicchio and use your hands to massage the marinade into the leaves. Season with salt and set aside for 30 minutes.

Start the beans:

  • Heat olive oil in a wide pot over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring regularly, until it is completely softened and beginning to brown.
  • Place garlic in a food processor and pulse until minced. Add it to the onion along with the crushed red pepper and cook for 45 seconds until fragrant.

Simmer the beans:

  • Add the stock and bring to a boil. Add the beans. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes until broth is reduced and thickened slightly. Note: you can add butter (plant-based or dairy) or tahini to help thicken the broth. Season the broth with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Meanwhile, place the dill and parsley in the food processor and pulse until minced.

Finish the beans:

  • Stir in the lemon juice, zest, dill, and parsley and season the broth again to taste. Cook for 4-5 minutes until the herbs are bright green. Turn off the heat.

To serve:

  • Arrange a few leaves of marinated radicchio on a shallow bowl and ladle the beans on top. Enjoy!
