It seems a little strange to be writing a recipe for a vegetable stew at the end of July, this one is such a warming and comforting dish, perfect for chilly autumnal nights! But the nights have been a little chilly and autumnal this past week, so we have been eating our vegetable stew curled up in front of the wood burner. It’s been lovely really!
As I’ve said before, having a little munchkin around means that recipes need to be quick and easy – and this one really was, especially as I used some ‘cheat’ ingredients!
Simply heat the olive oil in a large pan, and fry the onion and garlic together until soft. Then add all of the ingredients into your crock pot or slow cooker, mix together well and cook on low for 6 hours. This could also be cooked in a casserole dish in the oven, or even on the hob over a low heat.
Serve with fresh crusty bread or mashed potatoes.
