Warm up on a winter evening with a nourishing beef stew, made extra-satisfying with low-fat, herb dumplings. Try serving with steamed broccoli, or a leafy vegetable such as spring greens or cabbage.
Used different ingredients. my girlfriend and me are not fans of swede so used parsnips instead.... also crumbled in a couple of oxo cubes for a bit more meatiness - 12 Sep 2010
