175 g smallcarrots, peeled and trimmed
175 g parsnips, peeled and cut into chunks

2. Add the butterbeans, cider, sun-dried tomato purée, chopped tomatoes, dried mixed herbs, seasoning and crumbled stock cube. Stir well and bring to the boil. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes, until vegetables are tender. Meanwhile prepare the cobble topping.

3. For the cobbler: preheat the oven to 200C/gas 6.
