We have kept the flavours quite simple in this stew and instead add extra herbs and diced apple as a fresh twist when serving it.
I imagine mushrooms and tomatoes would be delicious in this too. You can also try a bolder choice of spices or other type of grains and legumes.
You can even throw in a piece of parmesan rind as it simmers to add a nice umami flavour to the stew (just remember to remove it before serving)
You can see this recipe being made by watching the video below from ‘Green Kitchen Stories’.
