Butternut Squash and Kidney Bean Stew

I might hate the lack of light, warmth, and the inability to take a good blog picture after work, but there are some things that I do like about the autumn. Mainly snuggly clothing and the food. 

This recipe is fairly quick and easy. If you had a slow-cooker, it would be a great thing to set a timer for and come home from work to. It makes quite hearty portions and it was nice to have the next day for lunch (and a bit more for dinner served over some rice and a green salad to make it feel a bit different than the night before.)

    • Ohhh that sounds lovely! Will you be sharing the recipe? x

      • No I just made it on a whim because I wanted something comforting and filling, it wasn’t photographed or styled at all – but very tasty! (Basic risotto method, lots of onion and garlic simmered in olive oil, rice in and heated until see through, white wine to cover and absorb, mushrooms chopped and in, then veggie stock added a little bit at a time until absorbed, followed by chopped fresh sage leaves (though they also can be bought and kept in the freezer) and black pepper, and finish with some chopped softened butternut squash. For the veggie version then add grated Parmesan to taste and a squeeze of lemon juice on the top! xxxx

  • Yummmy! This looks amazing. I make something similar, except I use kidney beans and cannellini beans – I never thought of adding lentils!

    • Ohh I love cannellini beans! (The lentils aren’t really necessary – they just bulk it up a tiny bit more! ) x
