Chipotle Kale Bean Stew

Kale stew 5

Do you have days when you want a healthy, tasty, satisfying meal but am short on time? Well look no further, try this kale bean stew recipe!

This recipe is easy, quick, uses only one cooking pot (so less washing up!) & it is economical too; using store-cupboard basics & veggies lurking in the vegetable drawer. It is also gluten-free & ideal for vegans, vegetarians & the health conscious.

By using milled chia seeds or protein powder (pea or soya bean work well) as a thicker, you add to the nutritive profile.  It also freezes well, making it an all round  convenient healthy economic meal.
