Sweet Potato Fennel and Chilli Stew

My delicious Sweet Potato, Fennel and Chilli Stew is a super comforting and bloat busting veggie dish.

The sweet potato will keep you feeling full but not bloated, and will give you a good burst of energy to last you all afternoon/evening. I absolutely love fennel as it’s super soothing on your digestive system. Chilli is also know to help boost your metabolism!

If you like this, I’ve got some other super comforting winter veggie dishes on my website like my Warming Pumpkin and Butterbean Bowl and my Quinoa Mushroom Risotto with Flaked Cod.

Throw in the sweet potato and fennel. Sauté for 5 minutes with a big pinch of salt and pepper. Throw on the kale and stock and cook for 40 minutes until the sweet potato is tender.

    I made this last night and it was deliscious! I didn’t have onions so I used Shallots instead, and it was really sweet and warming!

    Im thinking this could be done in a slow cooker but I don’t use my slow cooker very often and so not always sure of timings. Can someone who uses a slow cooker more regularly suggest what setting I should use and for how long e.g. low setting for 6 hours. I want to start using the slow cooker a lot more.
    Many thanks in advance.

      I’m not sure of the exact timing but why not try popping on the low setting for 4 hours and see how it turns out then adjust timing if it’s not right? x
