Squash and sweet potato are seriously satisfying and they taste amazing in this luxurious stew.

ingredients

  • Low-calorie cooking spray
  • 10 lean bacon rashers, all visible fat removed, roughly chopped
  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 600g prepared butternut squash and sweet potato chunks
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 4 tbsp tomato purée
  • 300ml boiling vegetable stock
  • 200g trimmed green beans

method

  1. Spray a large saucepan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a high heat. Add the bacon, onion, squash, sweet potato and garlic and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes, then add the chopped tomatoes, dried herbs, tomato purée and stock.
  2. Bring to the boil, cover and cook over a medium heat for 8-10 minutes. Stir in the green beans and cook for a further 8 minutes or until piping hot.
  3. Remove from the heat and ladle into warmed bowls to serve.

Tip: You can buy packs of prepared squash and sweet potato in some supermarkets. Any leftover stew can be made into a delicious soup by whizzing it in a blender with some more stock.
