Vegan Butter beans, quinoa and veggie stew
Great comfort food loaded with iron and anti oxidants! What a wonderful meal for a cold day!
This dish is so easy to make and so good! The butter beans are delicious and and with the quinoa and the veggies, it creates a lovely meal! If you have a large croud to feed, this is definitely a good meal option. I served it with brown rice.
8 chopped celery stalk - about 2 cups
5 chopped green onions
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 cups chopped kale
1 shredded parsley root / parsnip
2 cups fresh chopped spinach
1 can organic tomato sauce 15oz / 425 gr
2 teaspoon cumin
2 teaspoon turmeric
2 teaspoon sweet paprika
4 cups white butter beans that have beans soaked for the night
1 teaspoon agave
1/2 cup tricolor quinoa
1 tablespoon sweet chili sauce
7-8 cups water
In a cast iron wide pot, add olive oil, celery, green onions, sauté for few minutes then add the shredded parsnip, kale, spinach, cumin, turmeric, sweet paprika , let the spices combine and when you start smelling the aroma, add tomato sauce, beans, agave, quinoa, sweet chili sauce and water.
Bring to a boil and then lower to simmer, until the beans are soft and the sauce become nice and thick.
Enjoy with a good rustic bread or with brown rice.
