I guess we take the beans for granted. If you get white beans, try this:
Get 1.5 lb of head-on shrimp. Peel, reserving shells.
Use shells to make a shrimp stock.
Cook beans in shrimp stock with bay leaves, onions, and bell pepper.
Add one cap of liquid crab boil.
When beans are tender, add peeled shrimp and just cook them through.
Season with Tony Cachere's and serve over LA jasmine rice.
