Ingredients

1 butternut squash, peeled and cubed

Olive Oil

2 red onions, finely sliced.

2 tsp ground cumin

2 tsp ground coriander

2x 400g tins of chopped tomatoes

200g kale, chopped

400g butter beans

Juice of 1 lemon




Preparation


  1. Boil a large pan of water and add the cubed squash. Boil the veg for 10-15 minutes, until it’s just tender. Then, drain the veg, but keep the water.

  2. In the meantime, take a large saucepan and heat some oil over medium heat.

  3. Add the onions, fry for 5 minutes, then add the garlic, cumin and coriander. Cook for 2 more minutes.

  4. Stir in the chopped tomatoes then let everything simmer for 15 minutes.

  5. Add the squash and 300ml of the squash water that you saved - feel free to add more if you think the stew looks a little dry.

  6. Simmer for 5 more minutes then stir in the kale, butter beans and lemon juice.

  7. Simmer for 5 more minutes, season to taste, then serve. We recommend serving it with Greek yoghurt and some extra lemon juice.
