What to do with one can of Kidney beans, kidney beans with dill

Sometimes you want something warm and comforting and easy and quick, and once in a while not cheesy, and you have like this one can of kidney beans just sitting there. This fits the bill, this started it's life as my mom's replacement for the Persian dish ghormeh sabzi, which is green stew with lots of herbs, some meat and kidneys, it's all about time and chopping. It doesn't have that sour/bitterness though, so it's really fair to call it a mock version.

Quick kidney beans with dill

You do have to like dill, quite a lot actually, but assuming you do, most the work comes from chopping an onion and opening a can,



Ingredients:
1 tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 can kidney beans
1 tbsp dried dill, or 2 tbsp fresh
1 tsp turmeric (optional)
1/4  cup chicken or vegetable stock
salt and pepper
Yogurt to serve

Heat olive oil in a mid sized frying pan. Chop a small onion, and add it to the oil.

Cook until soft, or longer if you want a sweeter product.

Open the can of kidney beans, drain and wash.

Add beans,


Add half the dill, parsley, and turmeric (if using) to the onions.



Add chicken stock, and the rest of the dill. Cook until liquid has reduced, and if it blisters in the pan a little that's not a bad thing... 

Taste and season with salt and pepper.

Serve warm with yogurt or rice, or both.

Also great next to a pork steak.
