tuscany style bean stew

Tuscany was one of my favourite regions in Italy for food. This recipe is inspired by the flavours I experienced travelling around the area. Tuscans cooked with a lot of beans tomatoes- a delicious combination in my opinion! This stew makes about 6 servings.

Ingredients:

  • 1 can of whole tomatoes with liquid
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 can of chickpeas
  • 1 can of lentils
  • 1 can of black beans
  • 1 can of white kidney beans
  • 1 can of white cannellini beans
  • 1/2 cup of yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon of rosemary (dried or fresh)
  • 1 teaspoon of oregano
  • dash of salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil


Directions:

Add all ingredients to a large pot and cook on medium for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

If using slow cooker, add all ingredients and cook on high for 3 hours, stirring occasionally.

Add 1/2 cup of water if you prefer the stew to be less thick.
