- ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt
- ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
- 1 roasted red pepper, sliced (prepared, jarred peppers)

Bring a medium pot of water to a boil over high heat.

Drain the beans and set aside.
Add the olive oil to the pan and heat over medium low heat.
Add the shallots and cook, stirring occasionally until they just begin to soften.
Turn off the heat and stir in the Dijon mustard, red wine vinegar, salt, and crushed red pepper. Combine well.
Add the beans back to the pan.
Add the roasted red pepper. Stir to combine everything well.
Turn the heat to medium low to heat the beans through. This will take 2-3 minutes.
Remove the beans from the heat, stir in the parsley and serve.
These can be prepared a day ahead of time. Place them covered into the refrigerator.
If you are planning on serving them warm, simply wait to do the last step of reheating until you are ready to serve them.
