With the cold season approaching, it’s time to think about warming food that will not only fill us up but also provide some much-needed veggies in our daily diet. Whilst not everybody will subscribe to the vegan or vegetarian lifestyle, there’s no reason not to occasionally cut meat out of a dish, especially when the dish is as packed with as much flavour as this one. Sweet potatoes, tofu and green peppers provide the base of this thick stew and paprika gives it a smoky flavour that works so well in autumn.

 

Here's what you'll need...

  • 550g sweet potatoes, cut into chunks
  • 250g tofu, cut into chunks
  • 2tbsp olive oil
  • 1 shallot, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 green peppers, sliced into strips
  • 3tbsp sweet smoked paprika
  • 1tsp hot smoked paprika
  • 2tbsp plain flour
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1tbsp tomato purée
  • 300-400ml vegetable stock
