What a pleasant surprise to find fresh borlotti beans in the farmers’ market!  These were from Italy; they aren’t be harvested yet in our region.  I love their firm exteriors and creamy interiors!  Inspiration for this recipe comes from Sweet Almond Tree http://sweetalmondtree.blogspot.fr/2013/05/borlotti-beans-in-mediterranean-bean.html.  I liked this recipe because of the thick sauce.

As we’re leaving on Wednesday to join my husband in Stuttgart and catch the plane to the U.S., I adjusted the recipe according to what I needed to use in the refrigerator; uncooked chicken thighs, fresh tomatoes and leeks.

Dried beans just can’t compare to the fresh ones.  When I get back, I’m going to shell and freeze some to tide us over the barren seasons 🙂
