This is a great one pot recipe for those cold winter nights. hat is even better is that this is one of those recipes that you can usually throw together out of things you might find in any kitchen and store cupboard.
Chilli Bean Stew Ingredients
- 1 tin of borlotti beans
- 1 tin of chopped tomatoes
- 2 onions
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 2 tablespoons of fresh thyme leaves
- 3 fresh chillies (cayenne or similar)
- 5 potatoes
- 2 carrots
- salt & pepper
- 1 courgette
Ok so first thing to say is that this recipe is very flexible so feel free to throw in any other vegetables that you have lying around or substitute any of the above that you don’t have to hand.
Heat a little oil in a deep saucepan and gently soften the onions until they just start to brown. At the same time boil the potatoes and carrots until they just start to soften.
Once the onions are soft and the potatoes and carrots have softened drain them and add them to the onions along with the rest of the ingredients. You may also need to add a cup of water or so.
Simmer on a low heat for about 30 minutes allowing the stew to reduce down and flavors to bled together. Your can either serve it on its own if your vegetables are chunky enough or serve with rice or pasta.
