chickpea & green bean chilli stew

A Spanish inspired chickpea & green bean chilli stew. Spiced with coriander seed, cumin, smoked paprika, garlic and of course a bit of chilli too.  A quick and easy vegetarian and vegan dish, but would be great on the side with grilled or roasted meat and fish too. 

I used a Trinidad moruga scorpion chilli - reported to be the second hottest chilli in the world with a scoville rating of over 1.4 million!  Rather than over spice the dish I left it whole to let the fruity heat gently infuse in the dish. Your choice of chilli is of course up to you. 

I have also added a spoonful of my latest secret ingredient - Marmite. It adds a wonderful savoury flavour to stews and soups and is not at all 'marmitey in the finished dish'. So whether you 'love it or hate it' you can give this recipe a go.  I hope you enjoy - bon appetit! 

preparation time: less than 30 minutes

cooking time: approx 40 minutes
serves 2 as a main dish or 4 as a vegetable side dish

ingredients:


1 tin (400g) cooked chickpeas drained 

1 tin (400g) chopped tomatoes
1 large onion - thinly sliced 
200g green beans
2 cloves garlic - crushed
1 fresh chilli (or to taste) 
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp coriander seeds
1 tbsp Marmite
1 tbsp fresh rosemary - finely chopped
2 tbs vegetable oil
salt and pepper

method:


heat a large frying pan, add the oil followed by the onion, garlic, rosemary and coriander seeds. Cook gently until the onions are softened and starting to caramelize.


add the smoked paprika, cumin, Marmite and garlic, stir and continue to cook for a few minutes. 


stir in the chickpeas and green beans and coat well in the onions and spices before adding the tomatoes, salt and pepper. 

reduce the heat and simmer for about 20 minutes or so, until the sauce is thickened and reduced. 

serve with rice or flat bread.
