For those days when you just want a simple, healthy, hot and very quick meal! Spoon it over brown rice or pasta if you feel for something more filling. A hearty bean stew in a thick tomato sauce, spiced with garlic and chilli. I used dried white beans. Just soak them for 4 hours or overnight in a bowl with plenty of cold water. Then drain and rinse them before boiling for 30-40 minutes in a pressure cooker or for 60-90 mins on the stove. To speed up the process you can also used canned beans.
