Simply Beef and Lamb support both the Red Tractor Mark and the Quality Standard Mark for beef and lamb and if you visit their website you can find your nearest Quality Standard butcher. I’m helping to spread the word about their #LivePeasant campaign, encouraging home cooks to go back to basics and cook in a more rustic, simple way. One pot cooking is all part of this and as we all lead such busy hectic lives cooking all your meat and vegetables in one pot makes perfect sense!

    I need to make a vegetarian version of this. I love a good lentil soup 🙂

  14. Sabina Sher

    Oh this looks great, I’d probably take out the lamb so it’s veggie 🙂

  15. Emily Underworld

    The #LivePeasant idea is intriguing! I’m vegan, so I’ll leave out the lamb when I try this recipe! I’m hungry now…

    1. Camilla

      Maybe substitute with chickpeas and veg stock!

  16. Sarah Bailey

    Ohh this sounds like an interesting mix – I do love lamb so will have to give it a whirl. x

    1. Camilla

      Great Sarah, it is totally lush.

  17. Helen @ Fuss Free Flavours

    That sounds delicious Camilla – pulses are classic peasant cookery – a cheap and delicious way to bulk a dish out.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Helen, I can’t take credit for the recipe but it’s one we’ll be having from now on;-)

  20. kate @veggie desserts

    I love a rustic stew – and yes, definitely mopped up with crusty bread! It’s great that you’ve used cabbage – such an under-appreciated vegetable!

    1. Camilla

      The new season spring cabbage is lush right now, we love it:-)
