“This is one of my favourite stew things ever! Add whatever veggie to it you wish. I like putting carrots, parsnips and fine beans in other than what is specified below. Garnish with some vegan Parmesan and away you go. I think it's really good for you with loads of protein etc. I think you can substitute the beans for whatever beans you like. I've used pinto, broad and canneli, and flagolet before. You can even put a bit of chili in it if you like to spice it up. This is taken form "A Vegan Taste of Greece by Linda (surname I can't spell or pronounce sorry) one of the best cookbooks about/for vegans in my eyes. I end up having to change the recipe a bit in order to accommodate what's in my fridge.”
