Home alone for a week and forced to cook for myself, I decided to live on a diet of sorts to shed a pound or two.
A quick google-search got me to the 2-week diet of “fit for fun”, which seems as good as any, even if I may not do the full two weeks. Eager to get going, I started with the first dinner recommended for the first day: A Spanish Bean Stew! Here is the recipe:
Preparing the Spanish Bean Stew
Cooking the Spanish Bean Stew was quick and simple.
I chopped the salami, courgette, onions and a clove of garlic, throwing everything into a pan with hot olive oil. After searing it for a few minutes, I added the beans and tomatoes.
At this point, the stew was fairly liquid, mainly due to the tomatoes from the can. I let it simmer slightly longer than 10 minutes to thicken it.
Once I was happy with the consistency, I added herbs and some chili. Hmmm.
Not the most sophisticated meal, but quick and easy to cook.
The salami clearly was the strongest flavour, which may be due to the salami I used. The courgette and beans provide the filler. The main advantage, it gives you a proper amount of food without leaving you with a feeling of having eaten heavily. I like it.
