Za’atar Scented White Bean Dandelion Green Stew
⚡️Za’atar Scented White Bean Dandelion Green Stew⚡️
If you were named after a pantry item what would you be? I would clearly be BEANS 🤣. Or SPICES 😍. Or GREENS 😇 (though they’re usually in the fridge lol). Realistically though , I’d be all of the above 😁
I guess I’ve picked some good names because as @danbuettnerfound, the longest-lived communities in the world thrive on these basic foods #bluezone . A cup of beans a day helps you live gracefully until a 100. Greens are a true superfood. And spices? Well the only thing to be said about them is SPICE SPICE BABY 🙌🏽🥰
⚡️Sautee 1 tbsp olive oil on medium heat ⚡️Add 1 chopped leek (white and light green parts) and sautee until tender
⚡️Add 2 minced cloves of garlic and sautee for a minute
⚡️Add 1/2 tsp turmeric, 1 tsp smoked paprika and 1/2 tsp gently crushed coriander seeds and sautee for a minute until fragrant
⚡️Add a chopped carrot and celery stick, pinches of salt and pepper and sautee for 2 minutes
⚡️Add 1 cup crushed or chopped tomatoes, 2 cups of water, 2 bay leaves, a sprig of rosemary and a can of rinsed and drained white beans and stir until mixed well
⚡️Add salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer and cook with the lid on for 20 minutes, stirring every few minutes to prevent sticking
⚡️Add 4-6 chopped leaves of dandelion or other leafy greens and cook covered for 5 minutes. Add more water if you like. You’re looking for a thick, creamy stew like consistency.
⚡️Adjust the salt to taste. Serve with a dollop of your fav yogurt (I’ve used @kitehillfoods vegan yogurt) and za’atar with a drizzle of olive oil (obsessed with @terraneanherbsspicy za’atar #notsponsored)
⚡️Sprinkle with fresh parsley and chili flakes. Inhale.
