Place stew in an airtight container. Seal and chill for up to 3 days.

Falafel-Style Patties with Tahini Sauce:

Drain liquid from reserved stew; discard liquid. In a medium bowl, mash stew with a potato masher. Stir in 1/2 cup soft bread crumbs. Shape bean mixture into eight patties, 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick. In a large nonstick skillet, cook patties, four at a time, in hot oil over medium-high heat for 2 minutes per side or until golden brown. Drain patties on paper towels. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine 1/3 cup plain low-fat yogurt; 1 tablespoon tahini; and 2 teaspoons lemon juice. Stir in 1/4 cup chopped seeded cucumber and season to taste with salt and ground black pepper. Serve patties with tahini sauce, 2 pita bread rounds, halved crosswise; 1/2 cup chopped tomato; and 1 cup shredded arugula leaves or shredded lettuce. Makes 4 servings.
