Slow-Cooker White Bean and Sweet Potato Stew with Collard Greens

This stew is colorful and full-flavored thanks to a host of vegetables and seasonings. I like to cook the collards separately to avoid any bitter taste in the stew. Since sweet potatoes break down easily, it’s important not to cook this stew too long. For a mild yet still flavorful version, eliminate the hot chile. Serve it accompanied by crusty warm bread.

Serves: 4 to 6
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, bell pepper, and garlic. Cover and cook for 5 minutes until softened.
Transfer the mixture to a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker and add the sweet potatoes, chile, ginger, tomatoes, beans, brown sugar, allspice, cumin, bay leaves, and stock. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and cook on low for 4 to 6 hours.
Close to serving time, stir in the cooked collards. Taste to adjust seasonings, remove bay leaves and serve.
