  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 small squash deseeded and chopped into chunks
  • 2 onion thinly sliced
  • 3 carrots peeled and cut into chunks
  • 2 parsnips peeled and cut into chunks
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 400 g tomatoes chopped
  • 2 tbsp tomato purée
  • 5 tsp flaked chillies
  • 3 tbsp pesto
  • 100 ml stock
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 200 g self-raising flour
  • 50 g butter
  • 200 ml water


  • Heat the oil in a large, non-stick frying pan over a medium heat
  • Add the vegetables, in batches if necessary, and fry for 4–5 minutes, stirring regularly, until lightly browned all over
  • Season with salt and pepper
  • Transfer the vegetables to the slow cooker, sprinkle over the flour and stir well
  • Add the chopped tomatoes, tomato purée, chilli flakes and pesto, if using, and stir again
  • Pour over the stock and stir
  • Cover and cook on high for 4 hours
  • After the hotpot has been cooking for 3½ hours, make the dumplings
  • Put the flour in a large mixing bowl and season with salt and pepper
  • Coarsely grate one-quarter of the frozen butter into the flour
  • Toss the mixture to coat the butter lightly in the flour
  • Add the remaining butter in three more batches, grating and tossing it in the same way
  • This should prevent the dumpling dough from clumping and yield light, fluffy dumplings
  • Stir in enough cold water to bring the mixture together as a soft, squidy dough
  • Divide into 12 equally sized pieces and roll each into a ball
  • Remove the lid from the slow cooker, stir in the spinach until wilted, then arrange the dumplings gently on top
  • Replace the lid and continue to cook on high for a further 25–30 minutes, or until the dumplings are puffed up and fluffy
  • Spoon the hotpot onto serving plates with the dumplings on top
