1 tablespoon butter
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 carrots, cut into 1/4-inch dice
2 ribs celery, cut into 1/4-inch dice
3/4 pound boiling potatoes, (about 2) peeled and cut into 1/4-inch dice
1 zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch dice
1/4 head cabbage, (about 3/4 pound), shredded
3 3/4 cups canned low sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 cups canned pinto beans, drained and rinsed (one 15-ounce can)
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 pounds sole fillets, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 tablespoons pesto sauce
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper




In a large pot, melt the butter with the oil over moderate heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, carrots, celery, and potatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Add the zucchini and cabbage and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes longer

Add the broth, beans, tomato paste, and salt and bring to a simmer. Simmer, partially covered, until the vegetables are tender, about 18 minutes. Add the sole, pesto, and pepper and bring back to a simmer. Cook, uncovered, until the fish is just done, about 1 to 2 minutes more. To serve, ladle into bowls and pass more pesto if you like.


Wine Recommendation: A light Italian white wine will be delightful with the vegetables and pesto. Look for the most recent vintage of a pinot grigio from the northern Alto Adige region.

Groundnut Stew

Peanut butter and okra flavor and thicken this tasty African stew. You can substitute green beans for the okra, if you like; the consistency of the sauce won’t be quite the same, but it will still be thick enough to cling to the chicken.

From south of the border comes this spicy and hearty soup ladled over crisp tortilla strips and grated cheddar. The soup is chunky with chicken and avocado, but it’s the tortillas that give it a slight thickness and a special flavor.
