Easy peppers and white bean stew


Please let me know how this pepper and white bean stew turned out for you in the comments.

Today’s easy peppers and white bean stew is a typical “fridge cleaning” dish. I must admit that spontaneously cooked meals always taste best to me! Not to mention the satisfaction I get from not throwing anything away!
A while ago I posted an article about the benefits of meal planning, so if you don’t like to waste anything [ including time ] or need to organize yourself better in the kitchen, you will surely find some useful tips in there.

Back to the recipe – stew is super easy to make, gluten, nut and soy free. Keeps well in the fridge and can be frozen.
To season the stew I’ve used cajun spice mix which you’ll easily find at any supermarket or make yourself. I strongly encourage you to prepare or buy one, as it’s very aromatic and can add lots of flavor to many, many dishes.
