adzuki bean & winter squash stew

Submitted by: RINZEL

Introduction

The bright orange of the squash and the crimson of the adzuki beans make this quite a beautiful dish. If you like, substitute the more readily available red kidney beans for an equally dramatic effect. The beans get a 14 minute head start before the quick-cooking squash is added. Serve over noodles or rice to absorb the abundant sauce. The bright orange of the squash and the crimson of the adzuki beans make this quite a beautiful dish.

  • Really good smells coming out of the pressure cooker. For me the adzuki beans took longer to cook. I would have done them longer then added the rest. But good recipe. - 11/11/12
