• Squid & pinto bean stew with garlic toasts

    Slow cook squid with paprika, tomato and pinto beans for a robust one-pot meal filled with tender shellfish. Serve with garlic bread on the side.

     

      Dr Jenna Macchiochi's nutrition notes:

      "A warming winter dish that leaves you satisfied. The addition of pinto beans means this is filling and full of plant fibre (which most of us are not eating enough of). The squid is a great source of protein and low in calories, yet rich in vitamins and minerals including B vitamins which are important for energy and important immune strengthening minerals including zinc and selenium. You can ditch the toasts to reduce the overall calories in this dish."
