Beans - need inspiration

Planning to cook some beans as a main course tonight. They're white beans, larger than cannelini beans but look very similar. The instructions said to soak before cooking which I've done.

Any suggestions on what to do with them once they're cooked? I'm planning to simmer them in water with carrot, celery, onion, garlic and bay leaf - but need inspiration from there. In the past I've always added garlic, tomato, onions and whatever herbs I have around to the cooked beans but I'm looking for something new to try.

Items I have on hand at home are: eggplant, frying peppers, prosciutto, onion, shallot, tomato (canned & fresh). I also have some chinese broccoli and collard greens from my local farmers' market.

Any suggestions?
