one small green or red pepper

one cup broccoli florets

Boil the soaked (and rinsed) beans for about half an hour, until soft. For a quicker meal use pre-boiled beans, or leftover beans. When beans are almost done, start boiling the oats, they’ll need about 5-10 minutes.

In the meantime slice the onion, put it in a pot with some oil and saute it lightly, add the red pepper and the mushroom and continue to saute on medium heat.

Add half cup water, the broccoli and the cayenne, chopped garlic, and continue boiling uncovered on low heat for about 5 minutes. Add the rinsed mushrooms, turmeric, paprika and the beans/oats mix. In a separate bowl mix flour and water to get a watery paste. Pour it over the mix in the pot and stir until it will change into a thin sauce. Cook for a few more minutes.

Serve with fresh parsley.
