Stewed White Beans with Tomatoes and Winter Savory | © 2011 | | © 2011 |

Warming, filling, and delicious, this herb flavoured white bean stew is delightfully vegan and will definitely bring warmth on a cold winter day. If you don’t have winter savory, sage or rosemary would be the perfect substitute.

  • 200 g Dried white beans
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 1 can / 400 g Plum tomatoes
  • 2 tsp Winter savory leaves
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  1. Put beans into a large saucepan, cover with 5 cups water, and let soak overnight. Bring it to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until beans are tender, about 1 hour. Drain beans and set aside.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook briefly. Add the tomatoes, white beans, and winter savory leaves. Bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has thickened and the flavours have mingled, about 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Serve warm. | © 2011 | | © 2011 |
