the cold winter nights are drawing in so it’s time for stews
This is my go to dinner when my body is craving some warm and comforting food that is full of nutrients. I will make a big batch of this up when I know I’ve got a busy week ahead and am not going to get the chance to make dinners.
I love how cooking plant based food in batches stays fresher for so much longer than dishes that have meat and dairy in! Plus the flavours strengthen when left to marinade.
This dish is packed with fibre, so will leave you feeling full and satisfied. No culinary skills are needed to throw this together and feel free to use whatever beans you can get your hands on. Butter beans would also work a treat in this dish.
