Lebanon: Fasoulia Ma Khoudra

Fasoulia ma koudra LebaneseThis weekend I was looking for a vegetarian dish that would use up some of the vegetables we had left in the fridge, and helpfully I found a recipe from A Lebanese Feast that did just that. This was a Lebanese recipe that  was basically a vegetable stew, and it suggests you can substitute the vegetable as you wish. I actually had pretty much what the recipe suggested,  so just a few alterations. But this really was one of the easiest things I have cooked for a while; literally fry the onions and garlic and then add everything else and let it cook down in its own juices which produce an incredibly flavour.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 courgettes, sliced
  • 1 aubergine, into cubes about 3cm
  • 3 carrots, sliced
  • 200g grean beans, cut into pieces
  • 3 mixed peppers, chopped
  • 4-5 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 tin beans (red kidney, black eyed, what ever you prefer)
  • 2 chillis
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • salt to season

Method

  1. Heat the olive oil in a casserole dish and fry onions and garlic for around 5 minutes. .
  2. Add all the remaining ingredients, cover the pan and reduce the heat to low.
  3. Cook for about 45 minutes and served with rice or bread.

As I said, that’s it. Just let it cook and serve. A nice easy dish to use up vegetables left over from the week, and something doesn’t require much effort.
