Lamb , Bean and Kale Stew

Lamb, Bean & Kale Stew

Its getting very cold and the vegebox delivered a whole load of kale and other greens so to ward off any anaemia whipped up this stew/soup using some a little slow baked lamb from the freezer . Doing my best Nigella Express impression as I bashed it together in a few minutes and left it to simmer while I took a shower . Have been pondering wether I might be going a little bit over the top doing voiceovers to myself as I cook – I do draw the line at cheeky to the camera asides or seductive licking of spoons.

Though incredibly quick to make , the use of pre-cooked lamb made it taste as if the dish had been simmering for ages,as it melted into the sauce . I ate a whole bowl snuggled up with The Book of Lost Things by John Connelly and listening to Awkward Annie by Kate Rusby

Little things make me so happy

Lamb, Bean and Kale Stew

a few big chunks of slow-baked lamb from the freezer
250g (half a can ) of plum tomatoes
200g ( half a can ) of haricot beans
3 handfuls of Kale chopped

  1. Warmed through the lamb with the tomatoes & haricot beans
  2. Simmer for 15 minutes, add the kale for the last five minutes
  3. It tastes incredibly rich and nourishing think it would work equally well with a leftover chicken too if you had a little chicken stock to hand

This stew/soup combination with kale and beans evolved from my discovery last year of Kale soup courtesy of fickerite – caryn74 . It just tastes nourishing without being bland.
