This month we have a warming recipe using Thyme as our star ingredient.  We also have information about a cooking class being run locally.

Stew With Thyme and Millet
Thyme is a wonderful source of iron, add it to anything you can and make sure to add some vegetables high in vitamin c to help your body absorb the iron.

  • 4 tomatoes finely diced
  • 2 tbsp fresh thyme
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 2 tsp sumac
  • 1 tsp salt (or to taste)
  • 2 hot chillies (optional)
  • 1 onion finely diced
  • 1 garlic clove minced (optional)
  • 2 handfuls of millet
  • 500g vegetables of your choice- i used eggplant, pumpkin, mushrooms, broccoli and zucchini
  • 400g cooked beans (i used adzuki and have used cannelini)

In a saucepan place a splash of oil then add the first 9 ingredients in the list.  Simmer for 10 minutes or so then add the vegetables, if needed add some filtered water. Cook until the vegetables are soft or to your liking. Next add the beans and voila there you go there you have it a lovely stew with plenty of flavour.
