Ingredients

6 oz dried cannellini beans
2 garlic cloves, 1 whole, 1 minced, divided
1 sprig fresh thyme
salt
cold water
1 vegetable bouillon cube
1 shredded head radicchio
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
salt
pepper
chopped parsley
cracked black pepper


Soak beans overnight; drain, rinse and drain again. Combine with whole garlic clove, thyme, salt and cold water to cover by 2 inches; bring to a boil. Simmer until tender, 25 - 45 minutes. Add bouillon cube; cook 5 minutes. Drain beans, reserving liquid; discard garlic and thyme.


Meanwhile, saute radicchio, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper until tender, 7 - 10 minutes. Remove from pan. Add minced garlic clove; saute 2 minutes. Add beans and 2 cups cooking liquid; simmer until somewhat creamy, 5 - 10 minutes. Add radicchio and chopped parsley; simmer 10 minutes, adding more cooking liquid if the mixture is too thick. Serve sprinkled with cracked black pepper.
