^ I heard this was once the original title for "Sense & Sensibility"
here's an easy recipe with the instructions in a run on paragraph!
this week I have been eating a stew I made which consists of: 1 C. cooked butter beans, 1 C. cooked garbanzo beans, 4 C. water (more if needed), 2 diced potatoes, 1 diced onion, 2 diced zucchini, 1 chopped carrot, 2 cloves minced garlic, 1 minced serrano chile, salt and pepper to taste, 1 tsp. turmeric or curry powder, 1 Tbsp. prepared mustard, a handful of chopped rutabaga greens (any greeens will do, turnip would be good), a little of each fresh, minced: dill, mint, basil, oregano. Juice of 2 limes, 1 tsp. grated lime peel. In a pot or large saucepan saute potatoes, onions and garlic in either a little broth, water, oil, or wine over medium heat. When onions become translucent add everything except half of herbs and lime juice. Bring to a boil, lower to simmer and cook for 15-20 minutes. Add rest of herbs and lime juice and cook for 5 more minutes. Adjust salt and seasonings to taste, if you want to cook it a bit longer, sure! But it's probably done. I figure everyone knows how to cook their own beans!
