Cook: [insert protein name here] stew

lamb stew

You’ll need:

Protein of some description
At least 2 potatoes, diced
At least 1 large carrot, chopped
At least 2 sticks of celery, roughly chopped
1-2 onions, roughly chopped
1-2 cloves of garlic, smashed
½ cup rinsed lentils, optional
Salt and pepper, to taste
Various dried herbs and spices, to taste
Vegetable stock
1 tbsp corn flour

There’s only one step as this is all about the lazy: (in a thermal cooker or casserole pot) brown your protein of choice off with your onions and garlic, then throw in your vegetables and lentils, if using, then add salt and pepper, herbs and spices. Pour in the stock to barely cover everything. Bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes before transferring the pot into the vacuum sleeve, or leave it to simmer for at least half an hour on the hob. (In a slow cooker) throw all the ingredients except the corn flour into the slow cooker. Turn it on for at least four hours. When you’re almost ready to eat, dissolve the corn flour with some liquid from the stew and then add it to the pot. If you can, stick it back on the hob and stir it up to thicken the liquid.
