    WINTER STEW & DUMPLING

    Winter Stew & Dumplings

    For red days

    Choose a selection of winter veg that are free on red days (e.g. swede, leeks, carrots, onions, butternut squash, celeriac etc) and peel and cut into cubes. Spray with frylight and roast in the oven until softened (about 20 30 mins).

    Then put roasted veg in a slow cooker or stockpot with cubed, lean steak, add stock to cover and leave to cook.

    Add garlic herbs if liked, Worcester sauce and seasoning to taste - you can even add a can of chopped tomatoes to change the flavour.
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    For Green days:-

    Dice potatoes, carrots, celery and parsnip, sweet potatoes etc.
    Slice spring onion or leek
    Add a pint of stock made with chicken Bovril and a handful of barley, split peas etc.
    Boil until it is all cooked.
    If you cook the day before its required, leave it over night and it really thickens up.

    Alternative Green day recipe:-

    In the slow cooker put a handful of split peas and one of lentils, one handful of brown rice and one handful of pearl barley with a pint of stock made with Bovril and lots of herbs to taste.

    Peel and make very chunky dice of half a swede, 6 carrots, 2 parsnips and one sweet potato. Spray them with frylight and pop them in a hot oven to roast.

    On a second tray put chunky cut onions and one large leek with small salad potatoes halved - spray them and pop them in the oven for about 30mins.

    Then add them to the slow cooker with more hot stock to cover and allow to simmer all day.
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    Couscous Dumplings (free on Green)

    Take 1 cup of couscous and place in a bowl. Cover with a boiling hot stock of your choice depending on what you are eating them with chicken/beef/veg made with Bovril or a stock cube.

    Leave to stand until all liquid is absorbed. Add 2-3 eggs beaten, place spoonfuls or use an ice cream scoop onto a plate sprayed with frylight and microwave for 7-10 mins until firm.

    Place dumplings on top of stew/casserole for the last 15-20 mins of cooking so they absorb the flavour of the casserole.

    No I've not made them as yet, but a stew is so much nicer with dumplings so I just have to try them out....
