Kale and White Beans Stew

Prep Time

10 min

Prep Notes

Soak your beans overnight. Discard the soaking water and rinse your beans before cooking them. It will reduce flatulence and speed the cooking time.

I recommend to double or triple proportions to make soup for several days. The cooking time will remain the same.

Cooking Time

60 min




1 cup uncooked beans, soaked overnight

3 cups kale chopped

2 medium carrots

1 stalk celery 1 small onion

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tbsp. coconut oil

1 tsp. dried rosemary, dried sage and cumin

½ tsp red pepper kernel and,

a dash of sea salt and black pepper (do not salt during the bean cooking process, but after, otherwise the beans will not soften).

1tsp. lemon juice to serve


In a saucepan, sauté the oil, onion until soft. Add in the celery, carrots, garlic and cook until caramelized. Add spices, soaked beans and cover with water (4+ cups of water). Cook until the beans are soft (45 to 60 min - 22 min if using a pressure cooker). Then add the kale at the very end of the cooking process for 4 more minutes of cooking. Sprinkle some lemon juice just before serving.
