Number of Servings: 4


    1 1/2 cups dried kidney beans
    1 small green pepper, seeded & diced
    2 teaspoons salt (to taste)
    1 teaspoon ground cumin
    2 tablespoons oil
    1/2 (5 1/2 ounce) can tomato paste
    1 medium onion, finely chopped
    2 garlic cloves, crushed
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne (to taste)
    1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
    1/4 cup peanut butter, smooth is best
    1 cup frozen corn


1.Soak the beans overnight. Drain. Place beans with 6 cups of water into a large pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 2 - 2 1/2 hours or until beans are tender.
2.Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic and green pepper. Saute until the onion is just translucent, turning the heat down as needed.
3.Then, add the cumin and stir once or twice. Add the tomato paste, cayenne, lemon juice & 1/2 cup of water. Stir and bring to a simmer. Turn the heat down and simmer for about 15 minutes.
4.Meanwhile, put the peanut butter in a small bowl. Slowly add about 6 tbs of the liquid from the beans, mixing as you go. Stir this mixture back into the beans.
5.When the tomato mixture has finished cooking, pour it into the pot of beans. Add the corn. Stir and bring to a simmer. Cover, turn the heat to low and simmer gently for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
6.Serve hot over rice, or with a good bread.

    This recipe is from Madhur Jaffrey's "World Vegetarian", an amazing cookbook I turn to very often.

    This recipe happens to be one of my favorites in the book so far. It is tasty, healthy, and very filling. I always serve it over plain brown rice for even more protein and fibre.
