One-pot Courgette Stew

This is a really simple to make dish but tastes fantastic. The cooking time gives the flavours time to develop and the tex-mex style spices compliment the slight sweetness of the tomato and courgette.


  • 4 courgettes, ends removed and diced into 1 to 2cm pieces
  • 125g tomatoes, cut into 1 cm pieces
  • 2 cloves of garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • 3 whole cloves
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp dried coriander
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 150ml single cream
  • 150ml water
  • a pinch of salt


  1. Place all the ingredients into a large pan and stir well.
  2. Bring to a simmer on a medium heat.
  3. Simmer for 30 minutes. Stirring every 10 minutes to check it's not burning on the bottom.
  4. Spoon out into bowls and consume.

Serves 2.
