Side Dish: Easy Seasoned Northern Beans

It will look similar to this,
just no ham or carrots
My husband is a fan of northern beans. I had no experience with them until we got married and I remembered that his mom used to make it, so since then I've been experimenting with different things to make it my own. Here is the most recent version that we fell in love with.

1 can northern beans
1/2 medium onion small diced
1 tbsp dried parsley 
fresh cracked black pepper and salt to taste

  • In a small pot, combine the beans and onion.
  • Heat over medium heat.
  • Bring to boil, then simmer.
  • The liquid in the beans will begin to look creamy.
  • Cook until beans are tender and onion is translucent.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Stir in parsley just prior to serving.

Serving suggestions - This goes really well with any meal that includes cornbread.
