    Mixed Bean Casserole

    Beans are the ultimate in frugal food. High in protein and vitamins and versatile in use. You can either use two tins of bought beans (less frugal but still cheap) or soak dried ones overnight and then boil until cooked (can be over an hour for some beans) - good ones for this recipe: chick peas, aduki beans, black eye beans, green lentils, kidney beans (usually 11p for a value tin), borlotti and lima but any will do.

    Ingredients:

    2 leeks or 2 onions, sliced into thin round slices

    A little olive oil

    Mixed beans of your choice, cooked (how much is up to you - 500g+)

    2 tins plum tomatoes - chop them up (about 3 cups/800g in all)

    half a cup of water or vegetable stock

    a handful of fresh herbs of your choice roughly chopped or 3 teaspoons of dried herbs (suggested herbs - mint, thyme, sage, winter savory)

    salt to taste

    Fry the leeks in the oil for a few moments then add the beans and stir until coated with the oil. Add the tomatoes, water/stock, salt and herbs and bring to the boil. Simmer gently for about 20 minutes until cooked

    Sounds tasty. I like pink beans, I think that would work. I usually make a crock pot full of beans and then use the leftovers to make casseroles. Yummy

    Yeah sounds good to me, I'm going to try it some time this week. Just found this new website that has got quite a few adzuki bean recipes, and interesting cultural facts too:

    I tried the casserole and it's really nice. Am also thinking of trying it with mung bean instead of adzuki.
