We have all the produce you need to make this delish stew:
SLOW COOKER VEGGIE STEW
3 large tomatoes, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
1/2 kabocha squash, peeled & seeded and roughly chopped
1 cup chopped bok choy
1 bunch spinach or kale (if using kale chop into bite sized pieces)
1 ear corn
1 small zucchini, chopped
1 cup oyster mushrooms, chopped
1 tbsp garam masala
2 tbsp KICS lemon syrup
1/2 cup AJI
Chicken or vegetable stock
Place the above ingredients in a slow cooker and stir to combine. Cook on low for 4 hours. Check the stew after 4 hours and add either chicken or vegetable stock. The amount depends on how much liquid is in the slow cooker. Start with 1⁄2 a cup and add more if needed. At this point, you can also add 1 drained tin of chickpeas or lentils. Cook another 2-3 hours. Season with salt and pepper.
This can also be made on the stove. The cooking time will be approximately 1 hour.
This recipe is great to have on hand as you can use any combination of vegetables you like. Make a big batch and store it in 8 or 16 oz containers in the freezer. You can turn it into soup simply by adding chicken or vegetable stock. Use it as a filling for wraps. Serve it over rice.
Thanks for the great recipe Karen Curtis (Kics Lemonade)
