    FlemishMinx's Note:

    This isn't quite a stew, a chili, or a ratouille, yet it reminds me a bit of each. You'll just have to try it for yourself and see what you think. Whatever you want to call it, we call it tasty. Can be served as a side dish as well, but we like it on it's own accompanied by a nice loaf of a crusty bread. Plan ahead, the preparation time does not include three hour soaking time for the beans.

    1. 1
      Pick over and discard any damaged beans or stones; rinse the beans, then place in a sauce pan adding plenty of water to cover; soak for a minimum of three hours (can be all day).
    2. 2
      Drain the beans and return to the sauce pan with enough water to cover by 2 inches.
    3. 3
      Add the bouquet garni and bring water to the boil; reduce heat and simmer uncovered until the beans are tender (20 to 40 minutes); drain and set aside, discarding the bouquet garni.
    4. 4
      Place the eggplant cubes in a colander and sprinkle with kosher or sea salt; let drain for 30 minutes, then rinse and pat dry with paper towels (this step can be done while the beans are boiling).
    5. 5
      Pre-heat oven to 375°F.
    6. 6
      In a large frying pan over medium heat, heat 4 TBS of the olive oil then add the eggplant and saute until lightly browned on all sides (5 to 10 minutes).
    7. 7
      When the eggplant has browned, transfer to a large baking dish (I use an oval 35 cm X 24 cm).
    8. 8
      In the same frying pan, heat the remaining 2 TBS olive oil and saute the onion until it begins to soften but not brown (about 5 minutes).
    9. 9
      Add in the garlic and continue to saute 1 minute.
    10. 10
      Add the tomatoes, stock, allspice, red pepper flakes, and salt and pepper to taste; simmer slowly for 5 minutes, then transfer the mixture to the baking dish.
    11. 11
      Add the beans and the basil to the baking dish, and mix everything well.
    12. 12
      Sprinkle with the parmesan cheese and bake until golden, about 20 minutes.
    13. 13
      Serve immediately.

      Blah. Did not enjoy this at all. I, too, was looking for a way to use up adzuki beans I bought to make Japanese sweet bean cakes. I am not a vegetarian but this was one of the few recipes I could find using these beans. This recipe took a great deal of time but it lacked depth. Maybe a vegetarian with limited protein choices may think differently but no one in my family of five liked it (and I do have one veggie teen - but I do not make special dishes for her, she cooks for herself). I even tried the panko mixed with parm on the top as one reviewer suggested but that was just a waste of expensive parm.............
      To each his (or her) own I guess.

      Very nutritious and healthy! Even my 2 year old ate it all, this is the first time he agreed to eat beans! I didn't have the cheese and the thyme on hand, but it didn't matter. Thank you!

      I stumbled upon this recipe hoping to find a new way to cook my Adzuki beans and what a pleasant surprise! I took the advise of Moyni to mix breadcrumbs (I used Panko crumbs) with the Parm chz for the topping and that added a nice balance of texture and flavor.
