Chard, Red Bean, and Peanut Stew with Coriander & Chilli

15 mins active prep time, 4 servings

This is soul food in a bowl. It's creamy and rich with a subtle heat. Chard adds a pretty array of colours to the stew, but if you don’t have any available, you can substitute it for Swiss chard or spring greens. Don’t leave out the coriander topping at the end, as this lifts the stew with its fresh flavour. This is one of my favourite foods to eat on a cold, autumn day, while wearing a cosy, knitted jumper.

This recipe is from '15 minute vegan' by Katy Beskow, published by Hardie Grant Books, $29.99.
