Due to the conflict in Ukraine, it has been necessary to substitute sunflower oil with rapeseed oil in some products without a label change. The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.
Diced Sweet Potato
Vegetable Stock Paste(ContainsCelery)
Finely Chopped Tomatoes with Onion and Garlic
Greek Style Natural Yoghurt(ContainsMilk)
Water for the Sauce
Preheat your oven to 200°C. Pop the diced sweet potato onto a large baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper then toss to coat. TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary. When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until golden and tender, 20-22 mins. Turn halfway through.
Meanwhile, halve, peel and chop the red onion into small pieces. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Trim and thinly slice the spring onions. Heat a large saucepan on medium heat (no oil). Once hot, add the flaked almonds and dry-fry, stirring regularly, until lightly toasted, 3-4 mins. TIP: Watch them like a hawk as they can burn easily. Once toasted, transfer to a small bowl and set aside.
Put the saucepan back on medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil. Once hot, add the onion and cook until softened, 4-5 mins. Add the garlic and harissa paste, then cook for 1 more min. Pour in the water (see ingredients for amount), veg stock paste and chopped tomatoes. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium. Simmer until thickened, 7-8 mins, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, drain and rinse the black beans in a sieve. When the sauce has thickened, add the black beans and cavolo nero to the pan. TIP: Discard any tough stalks from the cavolo nero. Continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, until the stew has thickened and the cavolo nero is tender, 10-12 mins.
Once the sweet potato is cooked, remove from the oven and stir into your stew. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add a splash of water if it's too thick.
When ready, divide the stew between your bowls. Finish with a dollop of Greek yoghurt and generously sprinkle the toasted almonds and spring onion over the top. Enjoy!
