Lentil & Bean Stew

My Mum came home today, after four months away.
Not much of a welcome, thick and constant rain and about 17C(62F).
The classic story of- if only you'd have been here yesterday!
We were going to go out to lunch, but her car battery died.. so house bound, I made lentil & bean stew.
She bought me gifts from Papua New Guinea, South Africa, India, Madeira & the U.K!? :)
Recipe Serves 4
1Tbs olive oil
1/2 onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 carrot, peeled and chopped finely
1/4 red capsicum, chopped finely
12 basil leaves
1 tin organic peeled tomatoes
1 tin organic borlotti beans
1 tin organic cannelini beans
1/2 cup red lentils
1 cup water
Chilli paste
Salt n pepper

1.After browning the onions with the capsicum and carrot, put all the ingredients in a pot and cook for about 30-40 minutes.

Hello Veganini...

I hate to say it but I found your blog by seraching the keywords "plump, juicy, chilli, hole" because I didn't think anyone else would be silly enough to these as tag words for a blog! (How wrong I was) Anyway, dodgy as it sounds, my blog is actually about veg as well. I like the look of your recipies btw, will have to come back here and try cooking one sometime...

Peace and love
