Beans and Things

This is an oddly titled recipe but not an oddly tasting meal. Easy, filling, tasty and low fat – like most of the McDougall recipes I have tried out so far. I like the inclusion of molasses in this. I am pretty new to this ingredient. It is rich in iron and gives this dish a full body flavour.  You can find top grade, organic molasses in health food shops.  I used Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Molasses. 

What you will need:
2 cans of cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
Small broccoli, chopped
Half cauliflower, chopped
1 onion, chopped (optional)
1 stick celery, chopped
1 large carrot, chopped
1 large tomato, chopped
2 tbsp soy or tamari sauce
1 ½ tbsp molasses
Dash or two of paprika
Dash cayenne pepper
Few fresh basil leaves, finely chopped


Combine the beans and vegetables in a large bowl. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a small bowl and then pour over the vegetables. Mix well and pour into a covered casserole dish. Bake for 1 hour. Serve as is or spoon into tortillas. Easy!
