White beans with sobrasada* and cured cheese

This week we've changed our family reunion day. Little brother was in charge of the cooking. He's exploring his Julius book. He's offered us a savory and categorical dish, inspired by one of his recipes. It's ideal for these dog, I mean, winter days.... With his permission I give it to you.

You already know (if you follow my cooking adventures) that Julius cooks for two, so if you are a larger party, you only have to multiply (ingredients and time)

White beans with sobrasada* and machego cheese

2 servings

What size can of beans do you use (e.g. 500g)? I would like to try this recipe! Thank you!
