“Tender vegetables and beans under a cheese, nut and sesame topping. Great cold weather fare. I usually use the whole can of kidney beans because what can you do with the other half a can? And I can't find a 6-ounce rutabaga here in the States, so I use the whole thing (a swede or yellow turnip to you UK residents) so it makes a huge batch. Because of that, I usually double the topping. It's better the day it's made -- the topping loses some of its toasty crunch when it's covered and refrigerated.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet and saute the vegetables until lightly browned. Add the beans, paprika, cumin and flour and mix well. Add the broth and cook, covered but stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes.
  2. Spoon into a 2-quart baking dish. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. For the topping, combine the flours, margarine, sesame seeds, almonds and cheese in in food processor and process briefly until mixture resembles crumbs.
  4. Spread the topping over the vegetables and bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes until golden on top.
