1 can white cannelini beans

2 garlic cloves – chopped

1 young onion, baby leek or sweet onion – chopped

1 small thin celery – chopped

1 bunch red Swiss chard – chopped small

1 cup vegetable (or chicken) broth

1/4 cup white wine

3 tbsp fresh parsley – chopped

2 tbsp Kosher salt

1 tbsp coarsely ground black pepper

a good glug of Olive or Canola Oil (3 -4 tbsp)



  1. Wash all vegetables.
  2. Chop all vegetables.

Get Cooking:

  1. Heat a medium sized pan, on medium heat, with olive or canola oil.
  2. Add the garlic, onion, celery and Swiss chard to the pan.
  3. Let them simmer until wilted, about 10minutes.
  4. Add white wine and stir for 1 minute.
  5. Add the beans, broth, salt and pepper.  Simmer on low for about 15-20 minutes.
  6. Assessment #1: If the pan is dry, add more broth. Taste. You may now need to add more salt and/or pepper.
  7. Assessment #2: Does it taste like it’s happy together and the flavours have come together?  If not, let it simmer.   If yes, go to step 8.
  8. Remove from heat.  Add freshly chopped parsley and stir.
  9. Place in a pretty dish and drizzle a small amount of good olive oil on top, if desired.
  10. Serve hot and enjoy!
