Smoky Squash and BlackEye Bean Stew

Sunday night I was putting lambshanks in the oven and anticipating a meaty meal on Monday decided we would go vegetarian for Sunday night . I need something that could go in the oven so opted for a smokey squash & bean stew

Smokey Squash and Black-eye Bean Stew

400g of orange squash ( butternut or golden) skinned and chopped into 1cm cubed
200g of  black eyed beans ( soaked in cold water overnight for 12 hrs)
1 pint of vegetable stock
1 small onion diced
2 crushed garlic cloves
2 tbsp of smoked paprika
400g of tinned plum tomatoes
Handful of fresh parsley finely choppeed
2 tbsp of olive oil

  1. Fry the onion and garlic in the olive oil
  2. Add the stock ,paprika, squash and tomatoes and bring to a simmer
  3. Place in the oven a cook for one hour
  4. Finally stir in the parsley and serve with a scattering of feta cheese and warm bread

I was so wowed the delicious looking Focaccia and simple recipe shared by Jules ( Domestic Goddess In Training ) That despite being quite unsuccessful with this bread before ( last one could have been used as floor tile) I decided to have a go.I followed the recipe exactly  ( with the addition of a hanfuld of fresh rosemary .

Spending the day hanging out at home it was fantastic to give the bread plenty of time to prove covered in the sunshine. The  result after just  20 minutes cooking was a delicious airy scented bread.

    This looks perfect for the time of year, I really want to make the most of these kinds of dishes before it gets too warm (well, I hope!) to enjoy them properly.

    Glad the bread recipe worked as well for you as it does for me. I remember the first ever focaccia I made (using a different recipe) was dire. I was sho ashamed of it I threw it on the compost heap before the guests turned up for the BBQ.
