This bean and clam stew comes together in just over an hour for a hearty and delicious meal. Buttery white beans add a ton of substance and protein to this soup, which makes a great dinner. Green bell pepper and onion add a bit of rich and aromatic flavor while white wine brings all the flavors together. Serve this stew sprinkled with some chopped fresh parsley and a slice or two of toasted bread.


  • 400 grams white beans
  • 400 grams clams
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 onions
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • salt
  • water
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 cayenne pepper
  • 2 1/2 ounces white wine
  • fresh parsley


  1. The night before, liberally cover the white beans with cold water and let soak overnight.
  2. The next day, pour the drained beans into a tall, wide pot, cover with cold water, and boil on high heat.
  3. Once the beans start to boil, remove the foam on top and lower the heat, Add the paprika and turmeric and stir.
  4. Add the 2 cloves of garlic, the 2 halves of onion, and 1/2 the bell pepper. Add 4 ounces of water to the pot to "shock" the beans every half hour. Simmer for 2 hours on low heat.
  5. Once the beans are cooked, remove the onion, garlic, and pepper. Remove from heat and set aside.
  6. Add a tablespoon of oil to a skillet on low heat. Add the remaining onion and garlic and saute for 5 minutes.
  7. Add the flour and the cayenne pepper. Continue sauteing another few minutes until the flour is toasted.
  8. Add the wine and a splash of water. Simmer on high heat 1 minute until the alcohol has evaporated away.
  9. Add the clams. Cover the skillet and cook until all of the clams open. Discard any clams that remain closed.
  10. Add the parsley and simmer for 3 minutes.
  11. Add the clams with their juices to the pot of beans. Cook 5 minutes on low heat and remove the cayenne pepper.

I really enjoyed how easy and simple this stew was to make and truly believe that this is a 5 star recipe. It was filled with hearty beans, chunks of clam, and all the right seasoning. You just cannot go wrong with this recipe and I will continue making it over and over again.
