This turned out amazing when I missed the shops and just had to make something good from what I had in. A true vanlife recipe, making the most of what's in the cupboards. Perfect served with some fresh bread

  • Wonderbag


  • 1 Sweet potato
  • 1 Red onion
  • 4 cloves Garlic
  • 1 tsp Ginger
  • 1 handful Nettles/ spinach
  • 1 can Chickpeas
  • 1 can Chopped tomatoes
  • 250 ml Vegetable Stock
  • 1 tbsp Paprika
  • 1 Chilli


  • Start by frying garlic, ginger and onion in olive oil in a deep pan. Cook until brown, then add the paprika and chilli.
  • Next add chick peas and sweet potato. Add tomatoes and vegetable stock and bring to the boil. Let it boil for a few mins then place in the wonderbag for 20 minutes.
  • Take the pan out and add the nettles after washing them first (I like adding foraged items to my food). Put back on the hob for about 3-5 mins as this takes the sting out of the nettles and makes food piping hot.
