Windy Beany Stew (v)

Yes, like the fart soup recipe I blogged earlier, expect this to have an, ahem, effect on your digestive system. Everyone needs a good clear out now and then, yes?! Please don’t be put off by the name. It’s delicious and will only adversely affect you if you’re not used to pulses.

For 4-6 portions you need:
Stew
2 leeks, shredded
2 carrots, peeled and sliced into half moons
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
about 750ml light veggie stock (e.g. marigold)
about 1 cup red lentils
1 tin chickpeas, drained
2 tsp dried oregano
pepper
2 tbsp veg oil

Herbed Dumplings
50g vegetable suet
100g self raising flour
1 tsp dried mixed herbs
salt and pepper
cold water to mix to a dough

Begin by sauteeing the onions, carrots, leeks and garlic in the oil for about 5 mins. Add the lentils, chickpeas and stock and bring to the boil. Toss in the dumplings and simmer for 15-20 mins till everything is cooked. Serve with mashed potatoes and marvel at how something so easy can taste so delicious. Have a fart lighting competition about 3 hours later, mwahh!
