Small handful parsley, chopped
To serve: Rachel’s Low Fat Natural Bio Live yogourt

How to make:

4.Transfer the meat and vegetables to a casserole dish with a lid and transfer to the oven to cook for 2½ hours. The meat should be tender and the sauce thick.
5.Take the yogourt and dollop a large spoon in the centre of the goulash and sprinkle with chopped parsley, take to the table and serve. Try: serving with crusty bread or basmati rice
