White Bean, Coconut and Roast Pepper Stew (Gluten Free) | Rebel Recipes (2)

It’s been a while since I posted a cake recipe–but I think you’ll like this one. I think it’s such a delicious mix of flavours which are enhanced by a creamy coconut tahini topping and gooey warm berries.

It’s also incredibly easy to make–just a matter of adding all the ingredients to a food processor, blitzing, spooning into a baking tray, baking and viola!

As it’s made with buckwheat flour, it’s completely gluten-free, vegan of course and sweetened with a little coconut sugar and medjool dates.

    I made this and it’s now one of my favorites!! I made a few adjustments, I added a teaspoon of curry powder to the sautéed onions, used low sodium veg broth and at the end threw in a ton of spinach that I needed to use up!

    I made this.. absolutely delish.. one quick question, is the yogurt coconut milk yogurt or coconut flavored yogurt?

    I used coconut milk yogurt and worked out just fine.

    Thanks

    1. Hi Trish
      I used yogurt made from coconut – but I think that would work as well.

    Mm this was delicious!

    I accidentally added the roast tomatoes in at the same time as the peppers but no issue.

    I omitted the salt and added nutritional yeast, which was really delicious.

    It says 2-4 servings but that’s not right: to start off there are 3 cans of beans in there. It made about 8 servings.

    Delicious served with some spiced rice and kale stirred in to round out the meal.

    Also a heads up for others to keep an eye on costs, as cherry tomatoes, red peppers, and some of the canned beans listed are pricey! It cost me about $30 to make this. Next time I will make my own beans to save costs.

    Wow, this is delicious. So fresh and flavorful! I didn’t peel or seed the large tomatoes, just chopped them up… should I have? Also I didn’t read the recipe carefully and just dumped in everything at end for the final simmer and it was great! This one is a keeper!

    1. No need to de-seed.

  6. Could I use tinned tomatoes instead of fresh for the body of the stew, as I’d like to do this for an event?

  7. What size tins? The standard medium 400g can or the small 150g?

  12. Hi,

    This recipe says that the cooking time is 40 minutes but when I add it up it will take at least 50 and that is if I perfectly time up when the peppers are done and are ready to add the beans mixture.

    Thanks,

  13. Hi Niki… I need to apologise; I called you a Home Chef but you are much more than this, sorry. I also forgot to sign out on my first message as it’s early here in Oz and I think I’m still waking up only because I’ve spent after three weeks in hospital and one doesn’t get much sleep with all the Nurses scurrying about the ward. As I said in my first message I came across your site in Instagram, and I just wanted to say thank you for sharing with us all, so kind…

    Thanks so much…

  14. Hi Niki. I found you by accident on Instagram, thank goodness not a car accident, however, I love this meal. I love your tenacity as a home Chef, correct me if I’m wrong as I haven’t read much about you at this early stage, and Australian. Your site is definitely a keeper, I love it. A little problem. I am allergic to Capsic*ms/RedPeppers so any ideas on a replacement Vegetable, or Herb? I don’t think it would matter terribly if I doubled up on Tomatoes for this recipe, what do you think?

    1. Hi Nuffy
      I wouldn’t definitely double up on the tomatoes

        Thanks Niki I did, and this meal was delightful, and along with the Thyme I added homegrown Basilica which is a smaller leaf and a more pungent than the large Basil leaf, the sauce was amazing so I am going to use this sauce for the Gnocchi….

        Thank you for a fantastic site…love it to pieces! I’m now looking for one of your yummy curries to make, looking looking now…

  15. Greetings from Canada! I’ve recently discovered your recipes and made two of your stunning soups in a row. I

    am now a fan!!! Just checked alternate names that we use across the pond for this recipes’ beans: haricot = navy beans; butter = lima beans; cannelini = white kidney. Cheers!!

    2. Kim I’m confused about the tomatoes…there are two lots, it seems. One lot of tomatoes are for the oven with the peppers, is that correct? Then halfway down the Ingredients it say another 20 Cherri tomatoes??? it says add the cooked peppers so does that mean the tomatoes too??? Maybe I’m not reading this recipe well….

      Thanks Nuffy…

  25. Hi there. This recipe looks amazing but i’m new to cooking and am getting a little confused. The recipe calls for 2 handfuls of cherry tomatoes and then 5 large or 2 cherry tomatoes. Which quanity of tomatoes does in the oven with the peppers? And from step 3 we take the raw tomatoes to cook for 5 min in thr stew and then in step 5 we take the peppers and tomatoes that were in the oven and toss in? Just making sure I am clear. Thank you so much!

    Reply

    1. Hi Jenny
      I have just reviewed the recipe and made it a little clearer I hope!
      You add two handfuls of cherry tomatoes to roast with the peppers. Then 5 plumb or 20 cherry to the stew.
      I hope that helps?
      Best wishes

    I’ve just made a vegan feast for my daughter and granddaughter….. white bean casserole, your moussaka with rice salad and tahini dressing. They absolutely loved it and there’s loads left even though they took some home. I’ll be using more of your recipes from now on . Baked peaches with coconut yoghurt made a lovely pud.
