There's only one sensible response to (yet another) miserable British winter's day: warming, comforting food that feels just like turning the thermostat up a notch. In our Food Love Story, this lamb stew is ‘Lisa’s’ go-to option, and her two teenage sons love it, too – especially when she throws in some green olives, a little nod to her (slightly sunnier) Greek homeland. See method
of the reference intake
This stew is a great get-ahead dish – it tastes even better the next day after the flavours have developed. Reheat thoroughly.
Leftover olives are great chopped and thrown into pasta sauces and salads, used on top of a pizza or mixed with mayonnaise and lemon juice as a dip for raw veg.
Freezing and defrosting guidelines
Freeze stew only. Cook as instructed and allow to cool completely. Then transfer to an airtight, freezer-safe container, seal and freeze for up to 1-3 months. To serve, defrost thoroughly in the fridge overnight before reheating. To reheat and serve, place on medium heat, stirring occasionally until the dish is heated through.
