  • Summary

    There’s no stock in this wintry vegetarian stew recipe—it relies on the starchy bean cooking liquid for its flavor (which is a polite way of saying sorry, but you can’t use canned beans here and get the same results).

    Ingredients

    • 1 head of garlic, cloves separated, divided
    • 6 tablespoons olive oil, divided, plus more for serving
    • 1 medium onion, chopped
    • 1 small fennel bulb, chopped
    • Kosher salt
    • 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest
    • 2 teaspoons finely chopped rosemary
    • 3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, plus more for serving
    • 2 bay leaves
    • 2 cups dried navy beans, soaked overnight, drained
    • 8 ounces feta, preferably in brine, brine reserved, cheese crumbled
    • 4 large sprigs basil, plus leaves for serving
    • 1 cup Castelvetrano olives, pitted, torn
    • 1 head of escarole, leaves torn into 2-inch pieces
    • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    • 4 (1-inch–thick) slices country-style bread
