    Gorgeous!! I will admit that I’m not a huge feta fan but I think in a dish like this I would. I’m sure it adds a nice tanginess to the stew. Adding this to my list of must-try recipes!! 🙂

  2. Caroline says:

    While the stew tastes good otherwise, the feta just lifts it into a higher category, all salty and savoury alongside the sweetness of the tomatoes and spice. A little chilli is good too but, seeing as this was Little Missy’s dinner too, we can’t use too much – yet!

    OMG I hope everyone’s okay and didn’t suffer too much damage. Love the bean stew and adore feta too. Nomnomnom x

    Oh, lord, I read about this on an NZ blog I read, but didn’t expect to see it having an effect here – so glad everyone’s ok – terrifying.The stew looks great! Will try that.

    @English Mum, @Jo fortunately everyone was alright, although pretty shook. They’re still getting pretty large aftershocks so it seems as if everyone is exhausted with trying to cope with daily life while the ground still shakes, more than ten days later. Our thoughts are still with them, especially the Husband’s sister who is due her first child next week.Hope you both enjoy the stew. It’s also easy (although perhaps against the rules for the Vegetarian Cookalong!) to turn into something more meat-orientated with the addition of some bacon or chorizo.
