/ Has anyone got a great bean chilli/lentil stew recipe?
Anyone got a good recipe?
I don't know why but I'm really craving one just now.
Not so sure about weights but lentils of your choice + red onion, garlic, carrots, aubergine or courgette, maybe some mange tout. Some fresh chili if I fancy it. Can of whole tomatoes + tube of tomatoe paste to your own taste (not the whole tube).
Saute veg in some 50/50 olive oil, vegetable oil until soft.
Add lentils & tomatoes plus top up pan with water (I normally use the frying pan so about an inch of tomato / water stock over the veg). 'Fast' cook lentils and the simmer down takes half an hour.
Serve with baked spuds and some fresh coriander.
Occasionally I use a half a veg/ fish / chicken stock cube. Not entirely necessary but adds to the umami fix.
Dollop of fat free Greek yogurt & splash of scotch bonnet chili pepper sauce to garnish. Probably the tastiest lentil stew you will ever eat.
made a lovely lentil based dish today with brown lentils,chopped tomatoes,onion,butter bean,chorizo and olive (generous amount of red wine added and a small amount of my weapons grade chilli powder)
mushrooms (chestnut or wild/dried) and soy sauce/miso paste should give it some 'depth' of umami.
really nice coconut dhal recipe
You, and everyone else for that matter, need doubles in your life: http://norathekitchensplorer.blogspot.co.uk/2011/07/doubles.html?m=1
This time of year I rely on dhal with rice and Spanish chick pea and chorizo stew, great winter warmers
