We love baked potatoes with lots of topping on in Winter. Today I am sharing a baked sweet potato and borlotti bean stew.
4 Servings – Cooking time: 30 minutes
Sweet potatoes are incredibly rich in antioxidant vitamins beta carotene and Vitamin E, both of which are required to keep the immune system functioning and to keep skin in good condition. When topped with the rich, thick bean stew all thoughts of your Cleanse will vanish!

Squash and black bean chilli.
Either stuff a whole squash with the chilli, or dice and roast the squash and add it to the chilli. The latter opens up a whole variety of serving suggestions: eat it with rice or in a baked potato; top it with a dollop of soured cream, some spicy tomato salsa or some guacamole; stuff it in a taco with some grated cheese; or spread it over a tortilla. If you are stuffing the squash you will need to use one that is a suitable size and will hold its shape when cooked, such as onion squash.

Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 25 minutes
- 4 venison steaks (use beef if you can’t source venison)
- 1tsp black peppercorns
- 1tsp dried mugwort (optional)
- 225g blackberries
- 425 ml chicken stock
- 75 ml Gallo Family Vineyards Autumn Red
- 4 tbsp sloe gin
- 1 tsp blackberry jam
- Lemon juice, to taste
- 4 medium sized potatoes (maris piper are good for this)
- Horseradish root (to taste)
- Vegetable oil for frying
- Salt and pepper
Horseradish root & potato rosti:
1. Cut the potatoes in half and boil for 5 minutes.
2. Remove from the pan and leave to drain and cool, before grating
3. Grate some horseradish root into the mixture to taste and season with salt and pepper.
5. Heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan, form the grated mix into patties and fry until golden.
To cook the venison:
1. Season the meat with salt. Crush black peppercorns and dried mugwort together and roll the venison in it to create a light coating.
2. Heat a large frying pan until just smoking and add the steaks.
3. Turn each piece as it colours, until the meat is well-coloured
4. Rest the meat for at least as long as it cooked for in a warm place and then slice across the grain.
1. Press and sieve the blackberries
2. Add the Gallo Family Vineyards Autumn Red to the pan used to cook the venison, stir and reduce for a few minutes
3. Add the sloe gin, blackberries, blackberry jam and boil until the sauce coats the back of a spoon, add seasoning and sharpen with a squeeze of lemon juice

No payment was received. I was gifted a wine sample to try out.

Enjoy a relaxed five star Christmas dinner for two or double up for extra guests.
Prepare the blackberry and port sauce and pack the sliced sprouts into a plastic bag earlier in the day, then roast the duck breasts while the potatoes dauphinoise bake, for an easy Christmas dinner.
