The perfect combination of lovely chunky spring vegetables in tomato sauce with comforting fluffy steamed dumplings.

I remember eating stew with dumplings as a little girl and the whole process of adding the little balls of dough seemed both weird and magical to me.

I used to peek under the lid of my mum’s huge heavy lidded casserole dish and see them swelling and bubbling away in the juices – amazing.

My version is much lighter and fresher, but no less tasty.

I hope you love this. Let me know what you think…
