Slow Cooked Venison Casserole

This is a soft stew and ideal for anyone with gut issues, such as inflammatory conditions – diverticulitis, gastritis, coeliac disease, IBS-D, ME, candida, post gallbladder/appendix operations. The passata tomatoes and olives can be excluded and the stock increased where there is extreme sensitivity. The long slow cooking takes the onus away from digestion.

It can be served with mashed root vegetables of choice or steamed vegetables. In the event of illness such as ME or post operations where there is very little energy, it can be frozen successfully in advance and keeps for 2 days in the fridge, so can be heated up.
