Tuscan Beans

Story location: Home / food_and_drink /

A couple of weeks ago we tried the Tuscan Bean Stew made by Innocent (who are better known for their fruit smoothies). We liked it and decided to try to make it ourselves.

I followed a recipe in one of the Covent Garden books. The ingredients weren't the same but the end result was reasonably similar. I made a few minor substitutions (dried mixed herbs instead of dried oregano, and a teaspoon of powdered stock instead of salt and pepper) but apart from that I followed the recipe faithfully. I waited until we had some fresh parsley because I think dried parsley is a tasteless waste of space. Some herbs work ok dried but parsley really needs to be used fresh.
