Default White Bean Stew

Simple and filling little recipe for the winter. You could substitute the greens and beans with other varieties. The magazine I saw the recipe in listed a 26oz can of diced tomatoes while this one one lists 1 cup. I'd prolly go in between with a 15oz can diced, unless you want more tomato flavor.


* 2 pounds Swiss chard, large stems discarded and leaves cut crosswise into 2-inch strips
* 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
* 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
* 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
* 1 cup canned tomatoes, chopped
* One 16-ounce can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
* Salt


1. Bring a saucepan of water to a boil. Add the chard and simmer over moderate heat until tender, 8 minutes. Drain the greens and gently press out excess water.

2. In the saucepan, heat the oil. Add the garlic and crushed red pepper and cook over moderate heat until the garlic is golden, 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and bring to a boil. Add the beans and simmer over moderately high heat for 3 minutes. Add the chard and simmer over moderate heat until the flavors meld, 5 minutes. Season the stew with salt and serve.
