Smoked paprika, a little chilli and plenty of herbs give this stew lots of taste, without turning up the heat, making it perfect for sensitive tastebuds that don’t want to be scorched.

5:2 diet recipe tip:

For this recipe I’d suggest before serving, chop a handful of fresh coriander and sprinkle to garnish. Don’t chop to vigorously, the more you chop herbs the more flavour is left on the chopping board.
