Red Bean Stew
Red Beans: 1 cup
Mushrooms: 5-6 medium size, chopped
All purpose flour: 2 tbsp
Onions: 1 small, sliced thinly
Vegetable Oil: 2 tbsp
Spinach: 75 gr, chopped
Tomato Paste: 2 tbsp
Chili powder


1. Wash and soak the Beans in 5 cups of water overnight. You can avoid this step, but I strongly recommend it (It makes Beans more digestible and reduces the cooking time by 45-60 min).

2. Place beans in a pot and cover with water 2 to 3 above the level of beans. Bring to boil, and then reduce the heat to medium. Cook for 2 hours or until the beans are well cooked.

3. Add mushrooms and cook for 10 more min.

4. Add flour, tomato paste, chopped spinach, salt, pepper and chili powder and cook for 5 more min.

5. Meanwhile heat 2 tbsp oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add onions and fry until slightly golden.

6. Turn off the heat and add fried onions.

7. Serve either warm or chilled.
