Spicy Red Bean Stew

Do you sometimes just browse through blogs, from other blogs, by just clicking over to a blog with s "shout-out?"...well, I do that quite a lot lately, and get so distracted with what I was originally set out to do.
I was recently commenting on a blog...trying to comment on a blog, that did not happen, and I got "sidetracked" to another blog, that caught my eye...such as this Spicy Red Bean Stew!

I'm linking the recipe to the blog, where I have spotted this wonderful spicy Israeli Red Bean Stew, that actually reminds me of chili...a vegetarian version...and oh, by the way, I just found this awesome small "bean crocks"...set of 2, at Goodwill for a ridiculous 79 cents each!
Without any further ado, please check out this blog for the recipe, all the way from Israel!
 Mimi, @ Israeli Kitchen
The only adaptation I made...was, that I chopped 1/2 of a green pepper, and used 2- 15 oz. cans of Red Gold diced tomatoes. I also thickened the bean stew, as I usually do, with removing 3/4 cup of the liquid from the stew, and adding 3Tbsp. of flour, mixing it smooth, and adding it back into the pot! I must say this is as "good as it gets"...
Do Not use canned beans, as Mimi suggested not to, as well. You don't want to miss out on the special nutrients, that only comes from the dried beans.

Thank you for all your good wishes, about my hands's been about nearly one month now, and I'm just about all healed now. You all have been so kind and caring, and I do appreciate your thoughtfulness. No fun getting a nasty bite from your own pet (cat)...but you have to be understanding of the situation, and take care of the bite immediately, because infection sets in right away...which in my case it did, but it's all good now, and Prince is still around, 90% blind, from cataract, and almost deaf, but still is eating, and has not other issues other than being very, very frail and thin...still a trooper, still getting around, amazingly knowing where his food is, and his favorite lounging places (sometimes missing the jump to the bed, and sofa)...other than that he is still around, being guided by the younger little Persian kitty, that entertains him and sits by him when I'm not home! That's what I call a real "buddy!"

Happy Mother's Day!

To all mothers, grandmothers, step-mothers, and soon-to-be-mothers...may you have a lovely day full of sunshine, happiness, and much love... that you so, deserve!

  1. I love getting side tracked to other blogs from other bogs....Hehe! I just wish I had more time to do it! This looks so interesting and good. Love your bougainviellea is beautiful and looks so good with that drink! Cheers! We are taking our boat out for Mother's Day!

  2. Elisabeth, olyan sok finomságot készítesz babból, és ez az étel nem csak csodaszép színes, de nagyon finom is. Olyan guszta, kedvem lenne belekóstolni. Én nagyon ritkán főzök babot, igaz amikor itt meglátom Nálad, mindig megfogadom hogy ezután nálam is sűrűbben kerül majd az asztalra.
    Örülök, hogy már jól vagy, és meggyógyultak a kezeid.
    Szomorú lehet látni, amint így megöregszik a kedvenc cicusod "herceg".
    Leveled megkaptam, és vasárnap válaszolok rá.
    Szép hétvégét, boldog anyák napját!!! Puszillak

  3. Ez velem is előfordul szinte minden nap, egyik blogról kattintok a másikra, ami nagyon jó, mert csodás dolgokra lehet bukkanni, csak sok idő elmegy vele:) A ragud nagyon jól néz ki, a fiúk kedvéért én is gyakran készítek babos ételeket. Boldog anyák napját kívánok! Norvégiában februárban van, Skóciában márciusban, Magyarországon múlt héten volt, nálatok most van, kéne egy nemzetközi:) Szép hétvégét kívánok:)

  4. The bean stew looks delish with that bright color.

  5. The beans look amazing...and it is good to hear that Prince is still with us!!!
