Daube is a classic Provençal (or more broadly, French) stew.

This simple version is from Mauritius and is a good starting point for a more ambitious meal.

You can use tinned tomatoes but you may want to drain them first unless you want lots of sauce!

Serving suggestions

Serve with rice or plantains.


Add a thumb of peeled and grated ginger to the marinade.

Peeling ginger

There is no need to peel ginger. As a result of attending a Thai cookery demo, we have learnt that peeling ginger is unnecessary unless for aesthetic purposes as the skin is high in fibre and full of flavour. However, do remove any bits that have become tough or woody.
