This recipe is super simple and the result is very good. A mixture of vegetables is cooked in a tomate sauce spiced with cumin, cayenne and paprika. The combination of tomato sauce with a lot cumin is one of my favorites. This stew is also the perfect way to up your leftover vegetables, the recipe is very foregiving so you can add other veggies as well. I added some quorn for to protein, but chickpeas will be delicious as well.
I like to make this as an easy dinner and serve it with some toasted sourdough spelt bread!
200 gram flat broad beans
200 gram quorn or chickpeas
