TOMATO STEW RECIPE
Updated: May 18
I think this dish, isa real winner, because it has all the heartiness + comfort of a stew, with out taking hours to cook or leaving you feeling sluggish.
The tomato has been referred to as a "functional food," a food that goes beyond providing just basic nutrition. This is due to their beneficial phytochemicals such as lycopene, tomatoes also play a role in preventing chronic disease and deliver other health benefits
1 tbsp Coconut oil
2 Red onions, (peeled + finely chopped)
2 Cloves Garlic (peeled + chopped)
250g Cherry tomatoes halved
6 Plum tomatoes
6 Sundried tomatoes
1 tsp Turmeric
1 tsp Garam Masala
1 tsp English mustard powder
100g Frozen Peas
To Serve: I would suggest rice.
Step 1: Soften
Heat the coconut oil in a large pan, which you are able to pop a lid on to. Once the oil has melted add the chopped onion, sprinkle over some salt and over a medium heat allow to soften. This will take about 5-7 mins but stir frequently so as not to burn the onion.
Step 2: Coat
Once the onion has softened, add the chopped garlic, all the tomatoes then add in the spice and give it all a good stir to make sure everything is coated.
Step 3: Simmer
Reduce the heat, pop the lid on and cook for 25 mins.. 10 mins before the cooking time is up add the frozen peas.
Step 4: Serve
Whilst the stew is finishing off cook the rice as per the packet instructions. Once the rice is cooked serve and enjoy.
