Beef stew and mashed potato (GF)
A British classic and a dish I cook often through the winter months. I slow cook the beef until it falls apart and love the way it fills the house with a delicious and comforting smell. I use 100% British beef and a range of traditional root vegetables including carrot, parsnip, swede and carrot to pack a nutritional punch as well as a great taste. In this recipe I’ve omitted the flour that I usually use to thicken the sauce and use a gluten free stock cube so if you’re celiac or gluten intolerant you don’t have to miss out!!
Health benefits: Iron-rich foods like lean beef will boost your energy levels which you need when coping with the demands of a new-born baby! Breastfeeding mamas need to eat extra protein and vitamin B-12. Lean beef is an excellent source for both.
