    1. Hi Kate
      It’s 274cal per portion. We’ve only recently started adding calorie counts to the recipes, and as this was an older one the calories hadn’t been added. I have updated the recipe

  1. Does the 10 mins to prep include chopping and slicing all the ingediants? I can’t be the only one that needs about 45 mins to chop and dice/slice stuff?

    1. My knife skills are nowhere near as good as Kates – and this is how long it usually takes me. Saying that,my workspace is very organised. Just go at your own pace as you don’t want to injure yourself 👍

  2. I made this tonight and waited for the stock to reduce and it didnt. Ended up with veg cooked more than I want and not a thicker sauce but was still very tasty. Let me know what you think I did wrong 😀
