Hearty Winter Stew


  • 2 Onions (finely sliced)
  • 1 medium butternut squash (peeled, deseeded, and cubed)
  • Boiling water
  • Approximately 400g mixed sliced mushrooms (we used Shitake mushrooms & chestnut mushrooms)


  • 1 medium swede (peeled, cubed)
  • 200g chopped chestnuts (buy peeled, cooked & ready to use)
  • Sea salt (to taste)
  • Small handful of fresh thyme (finely chopped)
  • Handful fresh Tarragon (optional)

Now that the excitement of Christmas is over it’s great to have a warm and comforting meal full of nutrients.

This hearty winter stew is packed full of vegetables, herbs and even some festive chestnuts and is a great dish to cook slowly throughout the day to make your home smell amazing and give you a nutritious and delicious meal!




  1. Heat your favourite oil or cooking fat in a large casserole dish (we used cocoa butter - you could also use butter, ghee or rapeseed oil to name a few)
  2. Fry the onions for a few minutes until soft and translucent
  3. Add the swede, squash, mushrooms and more seasoning to the casserole, and sweat for approximately 10 minutes… until the mushrooms are soft
  4. Stir in the fresh thyme and chestnuts, and almost cover the ingredients with boiling water (if unsure best to add less, otherwise the stew will be too thin), add a little more seasoning
  5. Once it comes to the boil reduce the heat, cover with a lid and gently simmer for 40-60 minutes
  6. Season to taste and serve with fresh tarragon
  7. Optional: upgrade with Pulsin Pea Protein!
