    When I made this I was unsure if I’d be that keen on it as I’m really not a fan of Swede. However, nom nom, nom! There are very few recipes on here that I don’t absolutely love once I’ve made them.

    I absolutely adore this recipe. It’s quick, it’s easy, I can almost just pop the ingredients in the cooker and leave it to it. It’s really packed with taste and texture, I love it, my parnter loves it, and my son loves it, his is usually gone in minutes. So, thank you for a really wonderful recipe! It’s become a regular meal in my household =]
