Smokey Duvec (Balkan-Style Stew)

Recipe by Mrs B
READY IN: 1hr 5mins




  • Cook the rice according to packet instructions.
  • About 30 minutes before the end of the rice cooking time, start cooking the potatoes; bring to the boil and boil them for about 5 minutes.
  • While the potatoes are cooking and rice continues to cook, chop the onion and garlic and fry in a large saucepan for about 4 minutes.
  • Chop the peppers and tomatoes, add them to the pan and stir in the tofu, mixing everything together; drain the par-boiled potatoes and add them too; stirring constantly continue to fry the ingredients for a few minutes.
  • Pour the vegetable stock into the pan, bring to the boil then lower the heat, cover and leave to cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Stir in the cooked rice, peas and black pepper; the peas will reduce the temperature of the stew so bring the contents of the pan back to a healthy simmer, then cook for another few minutes over a low heat.
  • Serve sprinkled with parsley.
