    This looks like the ultimate wintery stew – I’m definitely making it, although I’ll probs add a good 5 times more smoked paprika than specified because, erm, I have a problem.

    This contains the holy trinity: it’s comforting and cozy food, easy to make and I’ve already got all the ingredients in the cupboard.
