There is nothing like a hearty stew to warm the body. This stew is low in fat and cholesterol and cooks up in about 45 minutes for a quick but filling meal.


1/2 cup vegetable broth (see September 2007)

1 can (15 oz) navy beans, rinsed and drained

2 tsp olive oil

1/4 cup onions

1 tbsp sage, crumbled

2 tsp lemon juice

2 tbsp celery leaves, chopped

1 clove garlic, crushed


Heat oil in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Sauté onion and garlic 3-4 minutes or until onion softens. Add beans, stock, sage, and celery leaves. Cover saucepan and simmer 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove cover and simmer 5-10 minutes or until thickened. Stir in lemon juice.
