Wasn’t January a long month! Well its onwards and upwards folks!
To start my all new blog, I thought I would share a fantastic recipe for a winter warming stew, some details of my all new 100 mile club challenge and my up to date timetable!!
Prosciutto, kale & butter bean stew
  • 80g pack of prosciutto, torn into pieces
  • 2tbsp olive oil1 fennel bulb, sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • tsp chilli flakes
  • 4 thyme sprigs
  • 150ml white wine or chicken stock
  • 2 x 400g cans of butter beans
  • 400g can of cherry tomatoes
  • 200g bag of sliced kale


  1. Fry the prosciutto in a dry saucepan over a high heat until crisp, then remove half with a slotted spoon and set aside. Turn the heat down to low, pour in the oil and tip in the fennel with a pinch of salt. Cook for 5 mins until softened, then throw in the garlic, chilli flakes and thyme and cook for a further 2 mins, then pour in the wine or stock and bring to a simmer.
  2. Tip both cans of butter beans into the stew, along with their liquid, then add the tomatoes, season well and bring everything to a simmer. Cook, undisturbed, for 5 mins, then stir through the kale. Once wilted, ladle the stew into bowls, removing the thyme sprigs and topping each portion with the remaining prosciutto.
