This is a very simple recipe, full of natural sweetness, as well as a nourishing and healthy alternative to the more traditional lamb casserole or stew.

  3. Next add the diced vegetables and potatoes. Cover and continue to simmer for 1 hour until the meat and vegetables are tender then add the greens, simmer for a few minutes and serve straight away.
  4. Pass the Henderson’s around the table with a little cracked pepper to taste.
