This slow-cooked combo of sausage, beans, and winter greens is sure to warm you up on a chilly night. We used Swiss chard, but feel free to stir in any sturdy greens you like—collard greens, mustard greens, and Tuscan kale all work. Another plus: The stew keeps well in the freezer, so go ahead and make a double batch for incredible leftovers.


Uncooked turkey kielbasa

13½ oz

Canned cannellini beans

29 oz, drained and rinsed

Canned diced tomatoes

14½ oz

Fat-free reduced sodium chicken broth

¾ cup(s)

Uncooked scallion(s)

2 medium, thinly sliced

Black pepper


Uncooked Swiss chard

3 cup(s), thinly sliced leaves, lightly packed


  1. Cut the sausage on an angle into 1½-inch-long slices. In a 5- or 6-quart slow cooker, combine the sausage, beans, tomatoes with juices, stock, scallions, and black pepper. Cover and cook until the stew is slightly thickened, 4 to 5 hours on High or 8 to 9 hours on Low.
  2. Stir the chard into the stew. Cover and cook on High just until the chard is wilted, about 5 minutes. Divide the stew among 6 bowls.
  3. Serving size: 1¼ cups
