Aduki Bean Stew

Aduki Bean Stew

You'll have to pardon the recipe as it's from a British website and thus has British measurements. (and yes, this is a picture of the actual stew I cooked)

200g Aduki Beans (I used small red beans because I couldn't find aduki beans)
1 onion - peeled & finely chopped
1 wheat free vegetable stock cube
2 carrots - peeled & thickly sliced
4 Tbsp fresh cervil - chopped (I never did find this and the stew was still great!)
1 leek - washed, trimmed, & finely sliced
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp turmeric
250g curly kale
Half a butternut squash - peeled, deseeded, & cut into chunky pieces

Presoak the beans for 12hrs. or overnight in water. Drain the beans and rinse well. Place in a saucepan of water and bring to a boil. Boil hard for 15 minutes. Drain and rinse well.
Return the beans to the pan with a Liter of cold water.
Add the stock cube and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
Add the vegetables, cumin, and turmeric then simmer for 10 - 15 minutes.
Add the kale and cook for a few minutes until just tender. Sprinkle with cervil.
