This Autumnal Stew with Mangetout was made a few months ago on a bleak day and mangetout was in season, but I think it is okay to share today as the weather outside had turned proper cold. The raindrops have been icy and all week in the morning, D had been scraping ice off the car, but still no snow in this part of Wales. I am pleased for now, but I have a feeling that we will see it this year.
You will not normally find mangetout in stews, but this one has some as at the time I had some in the fridge crying to be used, otherwise it would have got overlooked and gone into the compost bin in the garden. I added the mangetout towards the end of the dish as I wanted it to retain its crunch. I do also love the autumnal colours in this stew and the belly warming flavours that include cumin, coriander and chilli.
By the way this Autumnal come Wintry Stew with Mangetout is a one pot dish and bowl food, you don't need anything else with it, as it has bulgar wheat and chickpeas in it for substance. However if you like my husband are the greedy type, feel free to serve it with some chunky crusty buttered bread to dunk ink and mop up the deep flavourful juices.
If you want to make this Autumnal come Wintry Stew with Mangetout follow the link for the Clay Pot Stew. Its all the same except for the addition of mangetout; and you don't need a clay pot, if you have an ovenproof casserole dish, you can still make.
I am sharing this Autumnal Stew that also contains a whole tin of cooked chickpeas with My Legume Love Affair #113 hosted by The Mad Scientists Kitchen. The challenge was initiated by Susan and hosted by Lisa's Kitchen.
