Thyme is a wonderful source of iron, add it to anything you can. Make sure to add some vegetables high in vitamin C to help your body absorb the iron.
4 tomatoes finely diced
2 tbsp fresh thyme
1 tbsp oregano
2 tsp sumac (Greek spice with a tart flavor)
1 tsp salt (or to taste)
2 hot chillies (optional)
1 onion finely diced
1 garlic clove minced (optional)
2 handfuls of millet
500 vegetables of your choice (such as eggplant, pumpkin, mushrooms, broccoli and zucchini)
400g cooked beans (such as adzuki or cannelini)
In a saucepan place a splash of oil then add the first 9 ingredients in the list. Simmer for 10 minutes or so, then add the vegetables; if needed add some filtered water. Cook until the vegetables are soft or to your liking.
Next add the beans and voila – there you go – there you have it: a lovely stew with plenty of flavour.
