Pappy stew

This is a Paprika Stew. You can make it vegetarian or meaty. If you want to make it meaty, then just add whatever meat you want.


  • One big onion (chopped)
  • Potatoes (about 4 or 5)
  • Mushrooms (very chunky chopped)
  • 6 heaped teaspoons of Paprika
  • Tin of coconut milk
  • Veggie stock cube (or equivalent)
  • 400 ml of water
  • Serve with either rice, or crusty bread


  • Parboil the potatoes. They should still be rather firm.
  • Once the potatoes are done, cook the onions in some oil.
  • Once browning, add in the mushrooms and coat the mushrooms in the oil from onions.
  • Then add in the potatoes, and green beans.
  • Stir for a few minutes.
  • Add in the tin of coconut milk, the stock cube, the water, and the paprika.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Bring to the boil, and then reduce heat to medium and simmer for about 30 minutes.
  • Check that the potatoes are cooked as you like them.
  • Serve with either rice, or crusty bread.
