Servings 2 People


  • 100 g Dried Borlotti or Red Kidney Beans
  • 10 mL Olive Oil
  • 120 g Onion Chopped
  • 2 pcs Cloves Garlic Chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1 tsp Ground Coriander
  • 1/2 tsp Chilli Powder
  • 410 g Can Tomatoes Diced
  • 150 g Carrots Diced
  • 150 g Green Beans Chopped
  • 60 g Red Capsicum
  • 60 g Green Capsicum
  • 1/4 cup Water


  • First, cook soaked borlotti beans in plenty of cold water to cover, till tender - about 1 hour. Let water evaporate a bit towards the end of cooking time, as borlotti beans tend to disintegrate into the cooking water.
  • Heat oil in a non-stick pot and saute the onion and garlic till golden. Add spices and cook for a minute.
  • Add remaining ingredients, cover pot and cook till vegetables are tender. Stir from time to time, and add more water if needed. Add beans and cooking liquid (beans should look a bit like very thick soup). Stir and reheat.
