Curried vegetable stew

Spicy, Vegetarian

It shouldn’t feel like winter but it does! And when it’s this blooming cold I simply want a wholesome, hot and comforting lunch at work.

This dish meets the brief plus it’s cheap and simple for added bonu points.

All you need to do is:

  1. Chop 1 onion and fry in olive oil until softened
  2. Add 2 chopped carrots, parsnips and potatoes to the pan and fry for a further 3 minutes
  3. Cover the vegetable mixture in 1litre of vegetable stock and mix in 1tsp of cumin, turmeric, chilli (amend to your taste)
  4. Leave to simmer until the mixture has reduced slightly and then it’s done!

*serves 4 portions

If you find its a little thin you can add cornflour to thicken. Plus if you need a heartier meal you can add rice, or a naan, or both!! Yum
