Vegetarian bean stew with a Moorish twist. Quick n easy. Really healthy and low fat. Serve with chunks of crusty or toasted bread. If you can afford the fat, serve with grated cheese but I add a dollop of low fat soft cheese to mine. If you haven't got the beans in the cupboard, any beans will do.
2-3 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1 large courgette, diced 1cm
1/3 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp paprika
400g Tinned chopped tomatoes
400g tin borlotti beans
400g tin chickpeas
400g tin red kidney beans
1 heaped tsp Provencale herbs
Sea salt and black pepper to taste
Optional grated cheese or low fat soft cheese
Fry the onion and garlic in olive oil on a medium heat until soft.
Stir in the spices and cook for a couple of minutes.
Throw in everything else, bring it up to a slow simmer and cook for 10mins or more. It doesn't really matter.
Serve with crusty bread, rice, baked potato or whatever floats your boat. Add cheese if you want it (I like grated Mozarella but anything will do.) Enjoy :) Add olive oil if you like it. Enjoy.
