Spicy Tomato Butter Bean Stew

Recipe by: Noreen Wasti
Servings: 4

This warming, hearty, and spiced tomato butter bean stew is going to get you through the winter lull.

"This recipe comes together quickly and can be adapted easily. Use vegetable broth and omit the yogurt for a vegan option. Add a big handful of spinach or kale at the end for some greens. You could even spoon this on top of toasted sourdough with a poached egg. The fresh oregano works so well with all the components and the dollop of Greek yogurt is the perfect creamy touch. For that extra kick, don’t skimp on the extra drizzles of ARDOR and the deliciously briny pepperoncini peppers to finish." - Noreen Wasti
