Meatless Monday: Brazilian style bean stew


A Brazilian stew is usually made from firm, white fish but if you want to make a meat-free version, you may want to try this recipe with beans instead. Brazilian stew is a warming dish, perfect for those chilly autumn days.

Serves 2
You will need

1 tbsp organic olive oil or rapeseed oil
1 onion, peeled and chopped
2 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
120g organic brown rice
1 carton chopped tomatoes
1/2- 1 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp turmeric
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp pink salt in 300ml water
Juice 1 lime
1 carton organic cannellini beans
1/2 can coconut milk

Heat the oil and fry the onion for 2 minutes. Add the garlic and continue for a further minute. Add the rice, chopped tomatoes, salt and water. Add the thyme, turmeric, and garam masala and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to simmer, and cook for 25-35 minutes until the rice is tender and the liquid reduced.  

Enjoy
