Bean and Tomato Stew

An extremely nutritious stew which I like to make in bulk and freeze. My children love this and it’s perfect for winter and chilly evenings. The mix of beans are a very good source of vegetarian protein and fibre. They’re also very inexpensive to buy.

Ingredients

  • 3 carrots, peeled and cubed
  • 1 red onion, peeled and chopped
  • 2 shallots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 small butternut squash, peeled, deseeded and cubed
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 400g mixed beans (Pinto, Black Eyed, Butter, Haricot, Borlotti, Flageolet, Cannellini)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 litres of vegetable or chicken stock
  • 1 x 400g tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 2 table spoons tomato puree
  • 1 teaspoon of mixed herbs
  • 1.5 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Flat leaf parsley
  • Shaved Parmigiano

Method

    1. Chop your onion, shallots, carrots, pepper and butternut squash.
    2. Add a your olive oil to a large pan and cook the chopped veg on a medium heat until soft  – about 15 minutes.
    3. Once soft, add your garlic and cook for a few minutes, continuing to stir.
    4. Add the tomato puree and tin of tomatoes including the juice to the pan.
    5. Stir well, cook for a few minutes more and then pour in your stock.

    7. Mix well and season to taste with salt, pepper and your mixed herbs.
