It is warming, it is hearty, it is filled with goodness and it most certainly is lip smacking damn delicious. Simple, economical ingredients that are paired together and simmered low and slow leaving you with tender, melt in your mouth flavours.

During the colder months, you really can’t go wrong with a stew, it really is a bowl of warmth and comfort. Although stews are easy to make, it does involve patience and most of all, love. Slow cooking the stew ensures you build all those delicious flavours resulting in a rich and deep flavour. I have opted to use chickpeas and frozen spinach, (thanks to McCain for the convenience) but you can substitute with vegetables of your choice. Serve with rice, creamy mash, couscous or crusty bread and enjoy. 

Happy cooking,
