Cooking instructionsHow to

  1. Peel 2 yellow onions, 2 apples and 2 carrots. Chop the onion and grate the apples and carrots. Brown them in a casserole in 2 tbsp oil.
  2. Add 2 vegetable stock cubes, 500 ml / 2 cup water and the spices: 2 tbsp white vinegar, 1 tbsp mustard, 0.5 tbsp sugar, 3 tbsp tomato paste, 1 tsp oregano and 1 tsp ground caraway seeds. Let the pot simmer for 20 minutes under lid. Stir once or twice.
  3. Take a moment to sit down and relax. Take a deep breath, close your eyes and feel your breath. How does the air move into your lungs and how it moves out again? Take 10 long deep breaths and notice how it feels. If your mind wanders, just start again where you left off. When you feel ready, open your eyes and stretch out.
  4. Rinse the kidney beans and add them to the pot and boil for another 5 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve the casserole with a dash of yoghurt and bulgur, cous cous or rice.
