Stew is one of those incredible dishes that use up all the leftovers and turns into something delicious. Here’s a “recipe” for what I just tossed into a pot and am now calling it a Stew.
1/4 Cup each: Red Beans, Chickpeas, Black Eyed Peas, Lima Beans, and Northern Beans
3 cups Vegetable Broth
1 Can Muir Glen Fire Roasted Tomatoes
3 Garlic Cloves, diced
1 Onion, Diced
2 Cups frozen mixed vegetables
2 Red Potatoes, diced with skin on
1 tsp each: Rosemary, Thyme, Oregano, and Basil
Fresh Ground Pepper to taste
2 TBSP EVOO
Soak dried beans overnight, rinse, and set aside for later.
Saute onions and garlic in EVOO until soft. Add Vegetable Broth, tomatoes, and potatoes to pot, bring to boil. Simmer until potatoes are soft.
Add beans, vegetables, and spices, simmer until beans finish cooking.
I served mine just plain in a bowl. Then later in the week I had it with some quinoa and that rocked as well.
Eitherway, the stew was great and I still have some at home. But it’s so good, I don’t mind eating leftovers.
