Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 small red onion, diced
  • 2 medium carrots, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, ribs and seeds removed, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, slivered
  • 1 can (19 ounces) cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

Directions

  1. Step 1

    In a small saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and carrots; cook, stirring frequently, until onion is lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add bell pepper and garlic; cook, stirring, until pepper is crisp-tender, about 3 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Stir in beans, lemon zest, and 1 cup water, and season with salt and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer; cover, and cook until beans have absorbed most of the liquid, about 10 minutes. Stir in lemon juice; season again with salt and pepper.
