Red Beans No-Rice

Category: Main Dishes - Other



Suitable for a: vegan diet





Ingredients:

------------------------------------------------------



Red Beans No-Rice



1 medium onion or a few scallions, chopped

2-3 garlic cloves, minced (to taste)

1/2 cup lentils (not red), sorted and rinsed

1.5 - 2 cups vegetable broth or water

1 carrot, peeled and chopped

2 celery ribs, chopped

1 bundle baby bok choy, chopped (white part only, leaves reserved and coarsely chopped)

1 turnip, peeled and chopped

1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed

1-2 stalks kale, ribs removed and leaves coarsely chopped

salt and pepper





Instructions:

------------------------------------------------------



In a large saucepan over medium heat, add the onions/scallions and garlic. Stir until soft and browning. Add lentils, vegetable broth, and vegetables (reserving kale and bok choy leaves). Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 40-45 minutes until lentils are cooked but firm and liquid is almost entirely absorbed.



Add kale and bok choy leaves and kidney beans. Return heat to medium and simmer a few minutes until greens are wilted. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve with crusty bread.

I had a can of beans but didn't feel like beans and rice. This is the result of emptying my produce drawer. My husband declared it "delicious." Sub whatever veggies you have on hand, naturally.
