Greek Lamb Stew

Having found a few peppers lurking in the back of the fridge and a pack of lamb leg steaks in the freezer that must have been in there since last year, I wanted to create a dish full of flavour and reminiscent of holidays to match the beautiful weather today.

I hope you enjoy!

Nutritional Benefits:

Peppers are a rich source of vitamin C, E and B6 and again have anti-cancer properties.

Onions of all types (standard, red, shallots, leeks and spring onions) are truly a superfood containing vitamin C and compounds which have anti-cancer,  anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, can help to lower bad LDL cholesterol and raise good HDL cholesterol thus reducing the risk of heart disease as well as regulating insulin response (insulin resistance is often a precursor to developing type 2 diabetes).

Tomatoes contain vitamins C and E, anticancer properties and may ease symptoms of asthma. Cooking tomatoes concentrate the compounds making it  easier for the body to absorb it. Also, adding fat (as in olive or vegetable oil) boosts the absorption further.

 

The recipes are free to everyone to use (please give credits to us if you choose to use them), and always will be, but our website (and non-profit organisation) incurs costs to keep it running. If you would like to help keep it going, please consider giving a donation.
