Swiss Chard and White Bean Stew

You can whip up this Chard and White Bean Stew in less than 30 minutes, but I also like when it sits longer and gets mushy and warm, it doesn't look as pretty, but it is good. You can serve with meat or fish or it is a complete meal on it's own.


  • Prep Time : 10 min
  • Cook Time : 30 min
  • Ready Time : 40 min




  • 1 bunch Swiss chard, ribs and stems removed, cleaned and chopped
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cups water or broth
  • 1/2 cup sun sliced dried tomatoes
  • Sprig rosemary, chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper


In medium deep pot, heat olive oil over medium high heat.  Add onion and sauté 5 minutes.  Add garlic and chard.  Saute for another 5 minutes.  Add beans, broth and sun dried tomatoes.  Stir and add rosemary, bay leaf and salt and pepper to taste.  Bring to a boil and then allow to simmer 20-30 minutes.

Serve on it’s own with some crusty bread or use it over pasta with some Parmesan cheese.

    yum! If you put in chicken or a white fish like Tilapia it would make a wonderful winter meal!

  2. delicious, i love that you added sundried tomatoes. The chard makes it extra healthy. Really comforting winter meal.

  3. Could not find Swiss chard so I used kale which is popular around here in Texas . It was delicious and I did cook it in chicken broth for a long time. Yum!

    • Thanks for commenting, love hearing that it came out great and I would think any green would work, I love kale too.

  4. I love the combination of beans and greens!

    I love this. I eat beans a lot and was very happy to find another recipe that incorporates them
