humans are so cute, when we say goodbye we put our arms around each other and to show we love someone we bring them flowers. we say hello by holding each other’s hand, and sometimes tiny little dewdrops form in our eyes. for pleasure we listen to arrangements of sounds, press our lips together, smoke dried leaves, get drunk off of old fruit. we’re all just little animals, falling in love and having breakfast beneath billions of stars :~)


kidney bean chili stew

you will need:

•	250g cooked kidney beans (either canned or already prepared!)
•	1 small zucchini
•	1 carrot
•	1 red bell pepper
•	some cherry tomatoes
•	1 small red onion (plus some garlic if you like!)
•	1-2 tbsp of tomato paste
•	parsley
•	1 tbsp of flour (glutenfree if needed)
•	1 can of crushed tomatoes
•	spices of choice (pepper, salt, herbs…)


first you chop up all of the vegetables!
heat a little water (1-2 tbsp) in a sauce pan and add your onions until translucent.
then you add the flour, your spices and the tomato paste (and a little more water if needed) and let this cook for a while. then you gradually add the vegetables. first the carrots, then the bell pepper and zucchini and finally the tomatoes. cook this for a while and then add the kidney beans.
now it’s time to add the crushed tomatoes and a little water.
finish off with parsley and add more spices/tomato paste to taste!

really easy but so comforting on an autumn night!
serve with fresh bread or rice!
