  • 2 Onions (finely sliced)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium butternut squash (peeled, deseeded, and cubed)
  • Boiling water
  • Approximately 400g mixed sliced mushrooms
  • 1 medium rutabaga (peeled, cubed)
  • 200g chopped chestnuts (buy peeled, cooked & ready to use)
  • Sea salt (to taste)
  • Small handful of fresh thyme (finely chopped)
  • Handful fresh tarragon (optional)


  • Heat olive oil in a large casserole dish
  • Fry the onions for a few minutes until soft and translucent
  • Add the rutabaga, squash, mushrooms, and more seasoning to the casserole, and sweat for approximately 10 minutes until the mushrooms are soft
  • Stir in the fresh thyme and chestnuts, and almost cover the ingredients with boiling water (if unsure, best to add less, otherwise the stew will be too thin), add a little more seasoning
  • Once it comes to the boil, reduce the heat, cover with a lid and gently simmer for 40-60 minutes
  • Season to taste and serve with fresh tarragon
