The Perfect Summer Stew


by IMAGE

This summer stew involves very little standing over a hot stove (?Phew!? says you), and makes for a fab midweek meal that you can happily consume al fresco. Full of texture, it could easily be eaten on its own or with quinoa as a super-speedy supper. It also doubles up magnificently as an impromptu picnic dish served with chunks of crusty bread. The fresh, simple flavours are the main draw for me with the griddled sweetcorn just adding that necessary barbecue edge. More of an assembly job than anything else, the recipe requires very little cooking skill, but the results are still impressive – my kind of dish. Take it one step further by doubling the quantities and serving it in one large bowl that everyone can dig into at a small summertime party? trust me, I’ve never had any complaints yet! Now, where’s that glass of sangria?

 

Ingredients

  • 1 corn on the cob
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 large carrots, grated
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and
  • roughly chopped
  • 4 sun-dried tomatoes in oil, drained

  • 30g basil leaves, roughly torn
  • For the dressing
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
