One of my very favorite recipes.
Don't be afraid of all the garlic--as long as you keep the cloves whole, it has
a very mellow flavor. Tastes even better the next day!

White Bean Stew
Recipe By :Adapted by Susan Voisin
Serving Size : 6 Preparation Time :0:10
Categories : Beans
Soups And Stews
Amount Measure Ingredient --
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
cans cannelini beans -- or navy beans (about 3 cups)
head garlic -- (the whole bulb--15-20 cloves--or more!)
2 tablespoons water
carrots -- peeled and chopped
medium yellow onions -- chopped
1 14 ounce can whole tomatoes
freshly ground black pepper
cup fresh parsley -- or 2 tbsp dried
1 tablespoon lemon
Break the garlic bulb into cloves and peel off the skin.
Heat the 2 tbsp. water in a heavy bottomed stockpot over low heat. Cook
the garlic, onion, and carrots in the water until the onion is soft, adding
water as necessary to prevent sticking. Keep the lid on between stirrings.
Add the beans to the pot. Then add the tomatoes, crushing any large chunks
into smaller pieces. Add the water. Cover the pot and simmer for
about an hour.
Stir in the salt and pepper. If you're serving the stew right away, add
all the parsley and the lemon juice. If you're serving it later or at room
temperature, add half the parsley and then add the rest and the lemon juice
right before serving.
Serve over rice.

NOTES : This is a great recipe that tastes even better the next day. You
can add as much garlic as 2 whole bulbs without it being overpowering--just be
careful not to chop the cloves. For a stronger garlic taste, I mash a few
of the cloves against the side of the pot as it cooks.
Great served over rice!
