Our first holiday cooking guide of 2018 requires just a single pot, provides 3 of your 5-a-day & most importantly is very shareable.

The latest installment in our series of holiday cooking guides is also very adaptable, meaning if you fancy a little more spice the dish can easily be enhanced with garlic, chilli powder or cayenne pepper.

  2. Place all the spice paste into a processor or blender until finely chopped, now set aside.
  3. Place your spinach in a large colander before pouring the sweet potato & water over the spinach at the same time. Leave to stream dry the spinach.
  4. Return the saucepan to the heat & add the sunflower oil & spice paste for 5 mins until the mixture thickens. Now add the chicken & fry for 5 mins, add the cauliflower & cook for another 5 mins until the chicken starts to brown off. During this time stir occasionally.
  5. Season the pan with black pepper & add the sweet potato before cooking for another 5 mins. Meanwhile roughly chop the spinach before adding this to the pan.
  6. Serve the stew & scatter the pumpkin seeds over each portion. Any leftovers can be frozen for up to 3 months.
