Sunday afternoon is, I’m pretty certain, made for slippers, a snuggle on the sofa and a big bowl of warming and filling stew.
This stew has everything you need to make a Sunday afternoon perfect.
Start with chopped red chilli, chopped garlic and cherry tomatoes. Add them to a large pan and start to heat on a medium setting. Add butter beans once the tomatoes start to soften. Then add a tin of chopped tomato aand continue to cook.
Whilst the vegetables are simmering cook the wild rice. I’ve used a nice mix of wild and white rice as it gives a pleasant alternative texture between the two. Once cooked drain and rinse the rice.
Add the rice, boiling vegetable stock and chopped parsley to the pan. Turn the heat down and cook for 30 – 40 minutes.
Once cooked have a peek into the pan to see if the beans are soft and the stew is ready to tuck into. This is another perfect meal that is naturally gluten free and perfect for coeliacs and vegans.
