A hearty bean stew or casserole is not only filling and warming, but healthy, too. Find recipes that make the most of dried or tinned kidney beans, butter beans, pinto beans, cannellini beans and even baked beans!
Easy to prepare, this hearty meal with sausage, tomatoes, chickpeas and kidney beans goes into the slow cooker at the beginning of the day and is ready to eat when you arrive home.
The meat can be omitted without compromising the dish. Serve hot with crusty bread and a nice spinach salad.
This is a delicious meal that is so flavourful. You won't believe it's only 5 main ingredients. You can eat it on it's own but I like to serve it with mashed potatoes to soak up the delicious sauce. Set aside some of the fresh mint for garnishing.
This is a wonderful and easy preparation that is a hearty meal for the whole family. I often serve it over rice or orzo (rice-shaped pasta), with a nice tomato and cucumber salad and good bread. A simple, fresh and delicious taste of the Greek Isles!
An extremely easy take on a sausage and bean stew with a rich smoky flavour. If you prefer, you could use a can of chopped tomatoes and a can of mixed beans in water instead of the baked beans but I actually find the baked beans are tastier, not to mention quicker!
