  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup packed celeriac, shredded
  • 15.5 oz can garbanzo beans
  • 15.5 oz can kidney beans

  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 glug red wine (optional)
  • ½ tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 2-3 tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley


  1. Mix together the onion and oil in a microwaveable bowl and cook for 4 minutes.
  2. Add the celeriac, beans, broth, garlic, tomato paste, red wine (if using) and mixed herbs. Stir well.
  3. Cover with saran wrap and pierce the center. Cook for 6 minutes, remove the film, and stir in the peanut butter until the sauce thickens, then the chopped parsley.
