How to Make Beans and Greens


This video shows you how to make a rustic Italian stew of white beans and greens. Is it a soup, an appetizer, a stew, a side dish? Well, yes, it’s all... See more of the above. It’s comfort food, Italian-style. Chef John uses escarole here, a flavorful green that’s great for braising, and chicken stock. But you can make this completely vegetarian by using vegetable stock. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John’s Beans and Greens.

I wonder if a big dollop of miso paste wouldn't be the trick to replace the anchovy?

Looks great. I would hardly call it meatless, however, as there is anchovy and chicken stock in it. A little veg broth and salt solves that problem, though. Love this!
