FoodBlogSwap: Lentil and White Bean Stew

While I write this, it is only the 15th of July, but I already picked and prepared something for the FoodBlogSwap. For people who don't know: the FoodBlogSwap is for food bloggers from the Netherlands and you get a blog assigned to cook from and someone will cook from your blog. This time I had to cook from Let's Talk About Food, a fairly new blog, but already with a nice variation of recipes. I let my BF decide what we would make and he picked a lentil and white bean stew, which is very simple, budget friendly, vegan and surprisingly good! We did make the quick version with canned lentils though. To be honest I wouldn't have picked this myself, I wanted the go for the brown bean burgers, but I am glad that my BF picked this recipe :) Don't mind the picture, stew doesn't do so well on pictures and it looks like I got a heaping portion. But in fact I am using a small sandwich plate ;)

Lentil and White Bean Stew: (serves 3)
- 1 spring onion, in rings
- vegetarian/vegan sausages, sliced
- 1 can tomato paste
- about 250/300 gr canned black lentils
- small pot (about 150 gr) white beans
- Curry spicemix (or kukurma is also nice)

Bake the onion shortly in a pan until translucent. Then add the sausage and bake a bit longer. Lower the heat and add tomato paste and curry powder, make sure you don't burn the tomato paste. Add lentils and white beans and warm through. Add some boiled water to thin everything a bit if needed.
You can serve this with rice, but we didn't. It is also good on it's own.

  2. Wat heb je een leuk stukje gemaakt van mijn recept :). Ziet er goed uit.
    Dergelijke "prutjes" zijn favo in ons huishouden. Het ziet er niet uit, maar is lekker en snel...
