simple but filling dish thanks to the spuds and beans. Serve with Injeera to mop up the juices. If you have a pressure cooker this is a great recipe if not use canned beans for time otherwise prepare the beans according to the packet instructions before using


  1. Cook beans until tender.
  2. Add potatoes and celery to beans and cook until potatoes are tender.
  3. I cut mine into large cubes and it took about 4 minutes.
  4. Salt to taste.
  5. Saute onion until browned.
  6. Mix in with beans and potatoes.

Very nice, PCB...I added a half a dozen garlic cloves (that's pretty standard for our house) and a little dried fennel. A very warming and filling winter meal.
