DSC_0006

2 regular portions, serve with rice or quinoa

Ingredients

1 large onion, sliced
3 tablespoons oil
3 medium turnips, cut into quarters
2-3 sticks celery, cut into 2 inch pieces
8 fresh apricots, deseeded and halved (you could use dried apricots but soak them in a little hot water for 20 minutes and add the water to the stew)
1 teaspoon turmeric
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup water
Salt to taste
1 teaspoon sugar (optional – only if apricots are tart)

Method

  1. Fry onion in oil until golden
  2. Take off the heat and add turmeric, cinnamon, nutmeg, turnips, celery and salt
  3. Fry gently for a 2-3 minutes, add apricots and small cup of water
  4. Cook on low until turnips are cooked
  5. Check for taste – if the apricots are too tart you may wish to add some sugar at this point.
  6. Simmer for a few minutes and serve with rice or quinoa
