  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • 1 large tomato, chopped

  • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped

  • 3 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped

  • 4 leaves fresh sage

  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary

  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes, or more to taste

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 3 (16 ounce) cans navy beans, rinsed and drained

  • 1 bay leaf

  • 3 cups water, or as needed to cover

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives, or to taste


  1. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat; stir in onion. Cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add tomato and bell pepper; cook until pepper has softened, about 3 minutes. Add garlic; cook and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in sage, rosemary, pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Reduce heat to low and cook for 5 minutes.

  2. Transfer vegetable mixture to a large pot with beans and bay leaf over medium heat. Add enough water to cover. Cook, stirring occasionally and adding more water, a little at a time, if it looks like the beans are getting dry, about 30 minutes.

  3. Sprinkle with chives and serve.
