To make the stew

1. Add 1 Tbs olive oil and place it over

medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the onion, and parsnips. Sauté for

about 10 minutes, until the veggies are softened.

2. Add the garlic and chilli and cook for a further 2-3 minutes

3. Add the tomatoes, tomato puree, seasoning and stock and leave to cook for a further 5 minutes before adding the mushrooms and Kale.

4. Remove some of the stock and mix in with cornflour before adding it back to the stew and cook for a further  

5  Once the stew is finished simmering, roll the cobbler dough into a fat sausage and cut into 1cm pieces to make about 12 cobblers. Using your hands form into small round patties and place on top of the stew.

6. Bake for 40 minutes until the cobblers are fluffy and the stew is bubbly.
