  • 125 grams dried Adzuki beans
  • 1 medium carrot sliced

  • 1 medium slice pumpkin

  • 1 medium parsnip
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 dessert spoon miso
  • swiss chard or spinach
  • Large sprig of parsley
  • small amount soy sauce for seasoning
How to make it:
  1. In a medium sized casserole dish dissolve miso with boiling water.
  2. Add Adzuki beans (these can be freshly cooked or frozen, however it is best to thaw first if possible).
  3. Stir in rolled oats, paprika and herbs.
  4. Chop vegetables and onion into medium sized dice and add to casserole.
  5. Cover with water and cook in the oven at 160c for 1 3/4 hours.
  6. Stir a couple of times during cooking and taste to adjust seasoning.
  7. It may need thickening before serving use a small amount of cornflour or arrowroot, mixing in water first.
  8. This is wonderful served with brown rice or fresh spelt & rye bread drizzled with a little olive oil.
  9. This recipe is an ideal quantity for 2.
  10. Any vegetables may be used but I find the sweeter root vegetables go with Adzuki's the best.
