White Bean and Tomato Stew

By Amanda Wong

Nothing beats a good bowl of stew when it comes to comfort food. This vegan-friendly stew uses white beans which is an economical and rich source of protein.


We used canned beans in this recipe but if you prefer to use dried beans, you’ll have to soak the beans overnight. On the next day, transfer the beans to a pot filled with clean water and bring it to a boil then simmer for 45 minutes or until the beans are tender.


To make this a complete meal, serve with a few slices of sourdough on the side!
