Bean and tomato stew. An easy delicious one pot solution for a quick healthy meal. Vegan, high in dietary fibre and bursting flavour. It's sure to satisfy hungry tums!
Huge bowls of this comforting bean and tomato stew have been an absolute necessity here in Scotland as storm after storm has battered us since October last year.
For instance we are currently embracing the delights of Storm Henry.
The storms have actually become so consistent here that I've taken to wearing my full hill walking waterproof gear and boots every single day for getting to and from work.
Even when I've parked the car just 10 minutes away because I'd still end up drenched!
Ready in less than 45 minutes this bean and tomato stew really is a quick healthy meal. Yes I'm totally serious just 45 minutes!
It's low cost too being made from tinned beans.
My thanks to Cirio for providing me with free samples of their delicious cannellini beans which I used in this recipe. 🙂
You folks might think I'm going a bit mad with all this bean cooking at the moment?
I mean you've only just had the cheesy cauliflower and white bean soup, haven't you?
Well then sorry, there's more. Wait until my my Mexican bean bake arrives! Ha ha!
