I love, love, love this dish! I felt it needed more of everything (garlic, rosemary, salt, lemon, cranberries and walnuts) and the second time I made it, I added all of the above and loved it event more! Already, I’ve decided that this is one of my “go-to” dishes for all parties…super simple yet special and beautiful (way better than that store bought stuff…) AND so good for us!
I’ve talked a lot about the health benefits of beans, garlic and walnuts in other episodes so today I want to mention how beneficial rosemary and cranberries! Rosemary can help to alleviate muscle pain, improve memory and hair growth! Wow! Who knew? Cranberries, of course, really aid in urinary tract health but also may help to lower blood pressure and thus, positively impact our circulatory system. Hard to believe that something this delicious can be this good for us!
I REALLY like it with the red lentil flatbread from earlier in the season!
