READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by auntchelle

This is one of my favourite 'winter warmers'. The bonus is that it's also diet friendly too. My friends ask for this one time and again and don't realise it's from a 'diet' recipe book! (Note: Australian measurements used.)

This had a very robust flavor and was super easy to prepare. I did omit the chili, just a personal preference. I think I might try this again using diced tomatoes instead of the paste.
