Haricot Bean & Green Bean Stew Recipe

I love legume stews in general, but I absolutely love haricot beans. They are tasty, soft and creamy, and so versatile that can be used in all sorts of dishes especially stews. I have to admit I use already cooked haricot beans for this recipe, it saves time and does not need prior planning or preparation by soaking. Having said that I very much like different textures in my stews, and to contrast the creaminess of the haricot beans the crunchiness of green beans works perfectly. I also like to leave the carrots chunky for the same reason. This recipe is a relatively quick one pot wonder, light, tasty and healthy. You can serve it with rice, potatoes, on it’s own or as in this case with quick cook mixed grains (pearl barley, spelt, durum wheat, rice and oats). Any which way it is a delicious comforting meal.
