Author Notes

I decided to make a stew out of leftover leg of lamb and roasted potatoes from New Year's Eve. —Drew

What You'll Need
  • 2 cups white beans, dried
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 7-8 small carrots, chopped
  • 4 cups roast leg of lamb, cut into chunks.
  • 6 cups whole roasted small potatoes, cut into quarters
  • 4 cups vegetable stock
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tablespoons cumin
  • 3 cups canned diced tomatoes
  • salt
  • pepper
  1. Soak beans in water overnight.
  2. Heat the oil in a large stew pot or Dutch oven. Add the onions and carrots and cook until they start to soften, 6-8 minutes.
  3. Move onions and carrots to the side in the pan and add lamb. Cook for a couple minutes in the oil.
  4. Now add the potatoes, beans, vegetable stock and bay leaves to the pot. Add water until beans are covered by about an inch of water.
  5. Simmer the stew until the beans are just cooked. Then add tomatoes, cumin, and salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Continue to simmer until much of the liquid burns off and the stew has a nice, thick consistency. Taste for seasonings and serve with rice.
