White Bean and Mushroom Stew


Rosemary and white beans are always a winning combination, and adding cremini mushrooms and tomatoes makes the pairing even more delicious. The beans break down as they cook, giving this stew a wonderfully creamy consistency.


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 1 stalk celery, diced

  • 1 carrot, peeled and diced

  • 1 pound cremini mushrooms, quartered

  • ½ cup white wine

  • 1 (28-ounce) can whole tomatoes, pureed in a blender

  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary

  • 2 cups cooked white beans (equivalent to one 16-ounce can), drained

  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook onion, celery, and carrot until tender, about 8 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high, add mushrooms, and cook until softened, 5 to 7 minutes.

  2. Deglaze with wine, scraping up any brown bits with a wooden spoon.

  3. Add tomatoes, rosemary, beans, and 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickened, about 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Serve with a drizzle of oil.
