Recipe Ingredients for Tuscan Bean stew

2 cups dried cannellini beans
1 tbs olive oil
170 g pancetta, diced
1 onion, chopped medium
2 celery stalks, sliced
2 carrots, sliced
4 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
3 cups water
1 tsp crumbled bay leaves
4 cups kale, chopped
1 cup tomatoes, diced
1 tsp rosemary

Recipe Directions for Tuscan Bean stew

  1. Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and heat oven to 250 degrees. Heat oil and pancetta in large Dutch oven over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until pancetta is lightly browned and fat has rendered, 6 to 10 minutes. Add onion, celery, and carrots. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are softened and lightly browned, 10 to 16 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in broth, water, bay leaves, and soaked beans. Increase heat to high and bring to simmer. Cover pot, transfer to oven, and cook until beans are almost tender (very center of beans will still be firm), 45 minutes to 1 hour.

  2. Remove pot from oven and stir in greens and tomatoes. Return pot to oven and continue to cook until beans and greens are fully tender, 30 to 40 minutes longer.

  3. Remove pot from oven and submerge rosemary sprig in stew. Cover and let stand 15 minutes. Discard bay leaves and rosemary sprig and season stew with salt and pepper to taste. If desired, use back of spoon to press some beans against side of pot to thicken stew. Serve over toasted bread, if desired, and drizzle with olive oil.
