    Flageolet stew with cod and gremolata

    A simple one-pot dish, guaranteed to please. Replace the cod with crumbled feta or toasted pine nuts for a veggie version.

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 35 minutes
    • Total time: 45 minutes

    Serves: 2


    ½ tbsp olive oil
    10g unsalted butter
    1 stick celery, halved lengthways and finely sliced
    2 small shallots, quartered
    3 garlic cloves, 2 sliced, 1 finely grated
    2 rosemary sprigs
    ½ x 25g pack flat leaf parsley, stalks and leaves separated, finely chopped
    75ml dry white wine
    300g red choice tomatoes, roughly chopped
    400g can flageolet beans, drained and rinsed
    150ml Cooks’ Ingredients vegetable stock
    1 lemon, zest of all, ½ cut into wedges
    240g pack cod fillets


    1. Heat the oil and butter in a large pan over a low heat. When melted, add the celery, shallots, sliced garlic cloves, rosemary sprigs and chopped parsley stalks with a pinch of salt. Cook gently for 10 minutes until the shallots and celery are really tender but not coloured. Add the wine and bubble for 1-2 minutes, then add the tomatoes, beans and vegetable stock. Season, bring to the boil and simmer the stew for 10 minutes.

    2. Meanwhile, for the gremolata, put the finely chopped parsley leaves in a small bowl. Add the grated garlic and lemon zest. Mix together well and season. Season the fish and nestle it into the stew. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pan and cook for a further 8-9 minutes, until the fish is opaque and flaking.

    3. Remove the rosemary and check the seasoning. Serve immediately with the gremolata scattered over the top, plus lemon wedges for squeezing.
