Aduki bean stew with millet mash

Soak aduki beans for a couple of hours.

Serves 2

aduki beans
veggie cube
2 carrots
1 small squash
1 onion
1 handful chervil


Add water to a pan - 3 cups of water per 1 cup of aduki beans. Add a veggie cube to the water. Bring water to boil and simmer the beans for 30 minutes. Halfway through, add the squash and at the end add the onion and carrots.

Decorate with generous amounts of chervil.

Millet mash

If you are a potato addict and are missing your buttery and milky mashed white potatoes, then this dish is going to make your day.

Serves 4

100g millet
1 pinch of sea salt
1 onion, peeled and finely chopped
1 cauliflower, cut into small florets


Wash the millet and drain well. Place in a medium-sized pan of water, add the salt and bring to the boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.

Place the onion in a medium-sized pan with the cauliflower and enough water to cover. Bring to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 4-5 minutes. Remove from the heat, drain and return to the pan. Mash with a potato masher.

Drain the millet and mix through the mashed cauliflower and onion mixture.

Serve warm.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
