Thickening a stew!


Gold Member
Are you on EE Jodi? If you are you could add some red lentils, they really bulk up and thicken up a stew.

Or if you are doing a red day, you could serve it with some mashed swede and butternut squash which will help soak up the gravy.

Other than that I think it's a case of synning some cornflour or gravy granules!

I'm on a red day, not got any swede and the butternut squash is already in the stew, lol! I've used a glass of red wine (7.5 syns) in it already so I dont really want to use any more syns.

LOL, how much cornflour would i need to use? It is an average size slow cooker.

Ok, just fished the BNS out with some sprouts, mashed them put them back and turned it on again, so we shall see!
Some great ideas here folks - I often have a thickening problem! (No pun intended). The 'potato powder' sounds ideal, but thanks for the warning about syns. Funny how we always call it Smash, whatever brand it might be...
