Mixed-bean stew with rice

Another recipe! This was supposed to be a mixed-bean goulash, a la Jack Monroe, but I didn’t have any tomatoes…and then accidentally left it to simmer a bit too long on the stove so too much water evaporated, so it didn’t end up exactly as intended. Still yummy in the end though.

Ingredients:

  • 1x can of mixed beans
  • 1/4x onion
  • 1/2x carrot
  • a few bok choy leaves
  • 2x cauliflower florets
  • corn kernels
  • garlic
  • ginger
  • tsp of Vegemite
  • soy sauce
  • mixed herbs
  • hot water (at least half a bean tin, if not more)
  • stock cube
  • tsp sugar
  • Moroccan spice mix
  • Rice

Tools:

  • big frypan
  • small saucepan
  • kitchen spoon
  • teaspoons

Method:

  1. Chop vegetables and drain beans
  2. Fry onion in oil with garlic, ginger and mixed herbs
  3. Add other veg
  4. Add Vegemite with water and stock cube (remember to add extra water if you’ve got lots of veg!) and stir.
  5. Let simmer for fifteen minutes or so, stirring as needed so it doesn’t stick.
  6. If you leave it too long and it does stick a bit, use a firm spatula and more water to rescue it, plus a bit of soy sauce if required to get rid of any burnt taste. 😉
  7. Tip in the beans and stir to combine then heat for another ten minutes or so.
  8. Cook the rice while the mixture has its last ten minutes.
  9. Enjoy!
