Yes! In the sun-kissed fields of California, a thriving agricultural landscape bears witness to the flourishing growth of diverse bean varieties. Blessed with a Mediterranean climate, fertile soil, and an abundance of sunlight, the Golden State provides the perfect environment for legumes to prosper.
Meet Krissy Scommegna of Booneville Barn Collective. This farmer is the largest producer of Espelette Peppers outside of France and one heck of a great bean grower too!
The briny-sweet combination in this recipe once seemed pretty risky with prunes, olives, and capers. But, this dish is a true classic that has stood the test of time.
Imagine a base of silky thin-skinned beans and their rich broth replacing chicken, combined with fried garlic, red wine reduction, olive oil, prunes, and olives. Topped with a simple roasted potato salad featuring vinegar-soaked shallots, capers, and parsley. This dish honestly captures Chicken Marbella’s essence without being an exact replica. The tangy, briny flavors of vinegar, capers, and olives contrast delightfully with the sweet prunes, creating a satisfying vegan alternative that everyone will love.
