Bean and Vegetable Stew

4 OZ butter beans
2 OZ lentils
3 onions
3 carrots
3 tomatoes
1 green pepper
1 turnip
2 stalks celery
2 bay leaves
1 TSP yeast extract
1 TBSP lemon juice
salt and black pepper

Soak the beans overnight, or pour boiling water over them and leave for 1 hour. Simmer them in about 2 pints of liquid, until half cooked. Add the washed lentils, and continue simmering for about 30 minutes. Now add the bay leaves and sliced vegetables, allowing more time for the root vegetables. When everything is tender, add the lemon juice, yeast extract and seasonings. Serve with freshly baked, wholemeal bread.

I don't know an American term for butter beans, but they are the great big fat ones.
