    wow that is one impressive list! I am growing borlotti for the first time so this just hits the mark. Can I ask, can you eat the young beans like runners-or am I being daft?

    Default delicious Lotty Beany stew

    serves 4

    1 tbsp oil
    1 onion, sliced
    3-4 garlic cloves, crushed
    2 tsp cayenne/paprika
    1 fresh chilli, chopped finely (or use dried/lazy chilli)
    3 tbsp tomato puree
    1 pint veg stock
    1 lb ripe tomatoes, skinned
    1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
    fresh oregano, chopped finely
    300g dried or shelly beans (soaked and boiled)
    1 sweet pepper, julienned
    1 courgette, sliced or chopped

    to serve:
    *mashed potato
    *grated cheese
    *cream
    * crusty bread


    * all optional


    Fry off the onion, then add the garlic, saute for a few mins. Then add rest of the ingredients and simmer for about 20 mins or until the veg is softened


    We had mash, hummus & cream leftover in the fridge, so I used them but they aren't necessary. I put a dollop of hummus & a dollop of mashed potato in each bowl, then the stew, then drizzled a bit of cream on top, then added grated cheese on top too. It all melts down together and blends just lovely. Real comfort food

    Good - thought it might take me all night to find the bean recipes thread - but it was on the 2nd page thank goodness.

    I need to learn to do that - I keep losing things I want on here - and then I keep getting side tracked by other interesting things when I go looking.
