hearty vegan stew.



Don't worry pals, this isn't going to be one of those recipe posts with 40 paragraphs of my life experiences with beans - let's just jump right in. It isn't the prettiest, but it's so easy, and so so delicious. 


INGREDIENTS
• 1 large red onion
• 1 large red pepper
• 1 aubergine
• 4-5 cloves of garlic
• 2-3 tsp harissa paste
• 2 tins chopped tomatoes
• 1 tin baked beans
• 1 tin kidney beans
• 1 pack pre-made lentils 
• oil
• thyme (dried or fresh - doesn't matter!)
• salt & pepper
• paprika 
• nutritional yeast
• marmite/stock

• wedges, mash, rice, or whatever you want to accompany - if anything! 


METHOD
• Heat oven to 180ºC
• To a large oven dish, add 2-3 tblsp oil, salt, pepper & thyme. Chuck in your garlic cloves (still in their papery cases) followed by roughly chopped onion, pepper and aubergine - I think it's best to keep these pretty chunky.
• Toss them about to cover with oil and seasoning, and cook for about 45mins, or until soft and delicious.
• Once that's all done, heat up a big casserole pot on the hob, pop the garlic out of its skin, and chuck all the roast veg into the pot. Stir with 2-3 teaspoons of harissa paste.
• Add in all the tomatoes, beans and lentils, stir well, and bring to the boil before turning the heat down.
• Taste and season to taste - nutritional yeast, marmite and/or stock can give your stew a deeper, richer flavour, but this is up to you! I used 3 teaspoons nutritional yeast and a teaspoon of marmite.


And that's it! It's so cheap 'n' easy, and I'm actually quite surprised at how good it was, considering I  basically just made it up as I went, with only a vague idea of how it might turn out. 

It's amazing alongside some spicy wedges, but equally fulfilling on its own! 

Enjoy!

  1. This looks delicious! And the first sentence made me laugh - so often I give up on a recipe if there's 40 paragraphs before detailing the writer's love for their husband and the recipe buried somewhere at the end...
