Black bean & root vegetable stew

Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
½ cup Black beans, soaked
½ medium Turnip, cut into rounds & each round halved
¼ teaspoon Nutmeg
1 medium Onion, sliced
2 larges Carrots, quartered
1 teaspoon Dill weed
3 larges Potatoes, quartered
2 tablespoons Parsley
1 medium Parsnip, quartered
½ teaspoon Oregano
½ cup Green peas
½ cup Mushrooms, halved
Salt & pepper
Water or stock to cover

In the bottom of a large casserole dish, arrange the turnip slices & sprinkle with the nutmeg. Layer the rest of the vegetables in order, sprinkling in the herbs after each layer. Top with the soaked beans.

Pour over enough water or stock to cover & season with salt & pepper.

Cover with a good tight-fitting lid & place in an oven pre-heated to 300F. Cook for 3 hours. If you desire, add dumplings & cook for a further 30 minutes.

NOTE: I made this recipe to emphaise the taste of the root vegetables. Add whatever vegetables & herbs you wish. I used black beans to add some protein. If exchanging legumes, be sure to use ones that can stand a lot of cooking, kidney beans or chick peas, for example.
