It’s time to dust off your casserole dishes and grab your ingredients. Nourishing and hearty stew season is here. Casseroles, stews and one pot wonders are my all time favourite way to cook. Slowly cooking everything in one pot allows all the ingredients to create a delicious wholesome dish for all the family. This style of cooking is a wonderful way of all the nutrients cooking together to create a meal that is so tender and easily digestible.
This beetroot and grass fed beef stew is super nutrient dense. Full of fibre, protein, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals. Make it on the weekend and save a portion for nights when you need something warming with minimal effort.

Small handful of fresh thyme sprigs
4 medium sized beetroot peeled and cut into chunks
2 carrots chopped
