You could certainly play around with the protein used in this stew – next time I plan on using good ’ol chicken breast. And it’s also possible to omit the meat if you’d prefer.

Here’s what you need
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 yellow onion, diced
- 8 ounces pork tenderloin, trimmed, cubed and seasoned with sea salt, black pepper and dried oregano ¼ cup white wine
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
- ¼ cup Kalamata olives, pitted and sliced
- 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
- 1 vine-ripened tomato, seeded and diced
- 2 cups chopped fresh spinach
- 1 (15 ounce) can butter beans, drained and rinsed
- 1½ teaspoons sea salt
- black pepper, to taste
- Place the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until softened, about 4 minutes. Then, add the garlic and cook for a minute. Add the pork and cook until browned, about 5 minutes.
- Deglaze the pot with wine, scraping up any browned bits. Cook until the wine is nearly evaporated. Stir in the broth, tomato sauce, tomato, and olives. Increase the heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes.
- Stir in the spinach and beans until the spinach is wilted and season with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
