Simmer-foods mean less work in the kitchen, and more time to put your feet up and relax while dinner readies itself. Here's the recipe for a super tasty and spiced simmer pot with beef strips, sweet potatoes and chickpeas. The recipe is intended for two days - so that's an extra easy dinner for tomorrow. Enjoy!


1. Finely chop the onion. Rinse, clean and dice the bell peppers. Peel the carrots and sweet potatoes and roughly dice them.

2. Season the beef with salt and pepper and sear in a deep pan or pot with a dash of olive oil, until it's browned. Add onion, curry paste and ground coriander and stir well.

3. Now add tomato purée, water, stock cube, coconut milk, acacia honey, sweet potatoes, bell pepper, carrots and chickpeas.

4. Let the lot simmer with the lid on, for as long as your patience will let you - but at least 30 minutes. The beef will only get more tender the longer you leave it.

5. Season to taste with salt, pepper, acacia honey, and maybe a bit more curry paste.

6. Serve the yummy simmer pot in deep plates, and remember to save the rest for a quick heat-up dinner tomorrow.

7. Enjoy!


Tasks for kids in the kitchen: Let your kids help rinse and cut the bell peppers. They can also help cut the sweet potatoes - you can make it easier for them by cutting them lengthways, so the kids only have to dice them.
