Italian White Bean, Tomato, and Kale Stew
Serve this hearty white bean and tomato stew any time of year. This recipe requires an Instant Pot, which creates very tender beans in minutes! If you don't already use one for cooking beans, I highly recommend it. Serve stew with an extra drizzle of olive oil and a loaf of hearty whole grain bread for a nourishing plant-based meal.
Soak your dry beans in a bowl of water for at least 8 hours before making this. If you want to make this for dinner, then soak the beans in the morning, before you go to work.
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
8 cloves garlic crushed
2 cups cannellini beans (soaked overnight)
18 ounces diced tomatoes (2 cups)
1½ cups water
1 tablespoons Italian seasoning
1 teaspoons sea salt

1 handfuls parsley chopped
1 handfuls fresh basil chopped
