Great Northern Bean Hotpot

1 onion, chopped
1/2 cup great northern beans
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 celery sticks, chopped
3 carrots, chopped
1 red or yellow pepper, chopped
1 potato, chopped
1 cup vegetable stock
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp paprika (Ross uses Spanish smoked, I used just normal paprika)
Salt and pepper to taste


Soak the beans overnight. If you are not organised enough, try this. Boil a kettle of water. Place the beans in a pot, and add the boiling water. Boil hard for 3 - 4 minutes, then turn off the heat, and soak for 1 hour.

Boil the beans for between 25 - 35 minutes, or until tender.

In a pot, heat the oil, and add the onion and garlic. Fry for 2 - 3 minutes, then add the paprika. Cook for an additional minute.

Add the chopped carrots, celery, pepper and potato, and saute for 3 - 5 minutes.

Add the vegetable stock, and the cooked beans, and simmer on a low heat for 40 minutes or so, until the beans are very soft and the vegetables are almost falling apart. Season to taste.

Serve with warm bread rolls with a sprinkle of paprika on top.
