Lamb Stew with Vegetables

Stews just like soups are perfect meals for the freezing cold weather and you can pretty much add whatever vegetables you like. You can use other meat like beef or chicken. Please make sure that the meat you use is organic as non organic meat is injected with antibiotics and hormones.

500 grams of  stewing lamb diced

300 grams of potatoes peeled and chopped

2 medium onions finely chopped

2 carrots chopped

2 celery sticks chopped

1/2 cup of frozen peas

A generous amount of extra virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon of tomato paste

500ml of meat stock

1 cup of water

1 garlic clove finely chopped

1/2 glass of organic red wine

1 bay leaf

1 small sprig fresh rosemary

Chili flakes

Himalayan salt and ground black pepper

1/2 teaspoon of ground turmeric

Method

Season the lamb with salt and pepper and sauté in olive oil over medium heat.  Add the onion, garlic, celery and carrots and sauté for 10 minutes adding the tomato paste, chili flakes, turmeric and the red wine.  Then add the bay leaf, rosemary, broth and water.
