Kidney Bean & Mushroom Hotpot

This tasty recipe is from a Sanitarium booklet called "Eat Well & Stay Well".  I couldn't believe how substantial and hearty it is, for just 205 calories per serve!  I added half a cup of rice to bump it up to 300.  Full of veges, yummy, filling & healthy - this one, I definitely recommend!

Ingredients (Serves 6)
500g mince
1 tablespoon oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
3/4 cup chopped celery
1/2 medium green capsicum, chopped
1 small carrot, chopped
2 cups sliced mushrooms
310 can kidney beans
425g can tomato puree
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 small bay leaf

Heat oil in a frying pan and saute onion until tender.  Add mince and cook until browned.

Add garlic, celery, capsicum and carrot and stir-fry for 3 minutes.

Stir in mushrooms and cook a further 2 minutes.  Add kidney beans, puree, oregano, basil, parsley and bay leaf.  Cover, bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until vegetables are cooked.  Remove bay leaf.  Serve.
