The final dish, which is also vegan, looked like this:
2 large red onions, chopped
2 large or 4 medium cloves garlic, crushed
1 green pepper, chopped
2 large apples, cored and chopped
1 tin chick peas, drained
1 tin red kidney beans, drained
1 tin Barlotti beans, drained
1 tin peeled chopped tomatoes
2 Tablespoons wholegrain mustard
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Fresh ground black pepper
a little water
Heat the oil in a large saucepan
Saute the onions for about 5 mins till soft, but not browned
Add the garlic and pepper and cook for about a minute
Add peppers and tomatoes and cook for another 4 or 5 minutes
Add the apple, all the beans, the mustard, cayenne pepper and fresh ground black pepper to taste, along with about a 1/4 cup water.
Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer gently for about 20 mins, covered, adding a little water if necessary, till beans cooked through.
We served this, poured over a baked sweet potato half, along with sweetcorn fritters.
The idea for these sweetcorn fritters came from a Thai restaurant. The fritters from the restaurant are delicious, but anything so tasty has to contain something bad for you. Our fritters were good, but still lacked 'something'. We will work on this recipe when we are settled in our new home and kitchen, and bring it to you in a future post.
