Cannellini Bean Stew
This is another recipe that is a favorite at the McDougall Program. It is very easy to prepare and the leftovers are great the next day. This recipe may easily be doubled for more servings.
Prep Time: 5 min
Cook Time: 15 min
1 Place onion and garlic in a saucepan with the broth. Cook, stirring occasionally for 2-3 minutes until onion softens slightly. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for about 15 minutes to blend flavors, stirring occasionally.
2 Serve plain in a bowl with some bread or ladle over whole grains, pasta or potatoes.
Hints: If fresh tomatoes are not in season, use canned diced tomatoes instead. Substitute 3/4 cup of drained, canned diced tomatoes for every 1 tomato.
