vegetable stew

February 21, 2008 at 12:49 pm 2 comments

This is the first time I’ve made a stew and I didn’t really have a recipe for this, so I just threw everything together as always. I wish I was better about measuring, but it’s all about tasting to me.

Into the crockpot I added, roughly:

1 bag of frozen “stew” vegetables, pearl onions, celery, potatoes, and carrots
1 can of stewed tomatoes
1 can of pinto beans
1 can of kidney beans
1-2 cups of water
1 cup of vegetable broth
soy sauce or bragg’s amino
lots of various herbs: oregano, bay leaves, chili powder, red pepper flakes, paprika, mustard seed, salt & pepper

After cooking on high for about 4-5 hrs, I added about 5 cloves of chopped garlic, a cup of elbow macaroni and cooked on low for about another hour.


This really turned out delicious and I had about 8 cups leftover after we had dinner.

    Thank you so much! It was delicious. I need to find more crockpot recipes, b/c it is so nice to throw everything in there and let it cook on its own. Plus, leftovers are always great!
