tesco-tableware-1As the weather gets cooler and the nights draw in I love to cook up cosy, comforting meals. While I used to make a lot of lasagnes (GAH! so good) and other such rich dishes, this year I’m trying to eat a little healthier. I remembered I had seen a recipe for a vegetable stew in Sweet Paul magazine that looked delicious, so I hunted it down in last year’s Winter issue. Packed full of delicious and colourful veggies, I felt it was the ideal dish to pair with my new Rick Stein cook and tableware pieces from Tesco. I learnt a lot about Rick Stein and his approach to cooking during my trip to Cornwall this summer, so I was excited to try cooking with his pieces in my own kitchen back at home! Here’s how to make this all-in-one Mediterranean Vegetable Stew…tesco-tableware-2tesco-tableware-3tesco-tableware-4tesco-tableware-5tesco-tableware-6tesco-tableware-7tesco-tableware-8tesco-tableware-9tesco-tableware-10

3. Add the chopped tomatoes and vegetable stock.
4. Stir the stew and then cover and simmer for half an hour or so until the vegetables are tender.
5. Season the stew with the herbs and seasoning to taste.
6. Add the olives, basil and crumbled feta.
