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

Mystery stew

Food, Foodie, Kitchen

I have been a little lax on my household responsibilities over this festive period and haven’t yet done this weeks household shop, but that’s not all bad as its given me an excuse to use up all the things that need eating before either:
A. They go off, or
B. They get thrown for being unhealthy (new year starts Monday for me 😊)

So lastnight I pulled a bag out of the freezer that I had quite literally labeled “yummy liquid to be used for stewing”. So I didn’t really have a clue what it was but had vague memories of it being a stock I had cooked some meat in that was simply soooo tasty, I didn’t want to discard it.

I chopped up some onion, courgette and carrot and fried in olive oil.

I then added some chopped up pork sausages that needed eating, added the mystery stock and left to simmer for around 3 hours.

I made some chips and served the mystery stew with chunky buttered bread…..absolutely beautiful.

It was sooo tasty Gav proclaimed I should enter master chef (I wish), shame I won’t ever know how to recreate the recipe!

*note to self: must label better!!!!!!
