This hearty bean stew is the perfect comforting and tasty dinner recipe for those colder days! I have named it ‘Any Bean Stew’ as it is incredibly versatile and any kind of beans (except baked beans) would work for this so its a great way to just clear out your tinned goods.
You can also substitute the vegetables in the stew for whatever you have to hand or bulk it up with frozen versions, meaning it is cheap and easy to make and is a great way to use up any fresh produce that needs eating to avoid waste. As this recipe makes a large batch of stew it would be ideal to make as part of meal prep for lunches or evening meals.
This is a really delicious meal to make on the hob or, alternatively, you could make it in a slowcooker by just adding all the ingredients to it and cooking it on high for around 4 1/2 hours.
