Four Foods on Friday

#1. What is your favorite kind of cheese for snacking?
Laughing Cow Light Swiss Stlye cubes

#4. Share a recipe for a stew or soup.
Caribbean Bean Stew from Vegan Village

15 oz can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups mixed red, green and yellow peppers, chopped
14 oz can chopped tomatoes
4oz / 100g mushrooms, sliced
1 red onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tbsp oil
2 sticks celery, chopped
2 small sweet potatoes, chopped
1 carrot, diced
1 TB tomato paste
1 TB soy sauce
4 drops of tabasco sauce
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp dried thyme
2 bay leaves
black pepper
3 cups vegetable stock


Heat the oil in a large pan and gently fry the onion and garlic until softened. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste and soy sauce and cook until pulpy.

Add all the remaining ingredients and stir well. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove the bay leaves and serve. Delicious!
