Chunky Rosemary Vegetable Stew
Anyway, speaking of things that only happen every several years, the other day we bought a new crockpot! Actually, my Mom bought me a new crockpot. I was pumped to use it, so I made a delicious, simple veggie stew spiced with rosemary, garlic, salt and pepper. It only took about 15 minutes to prepare and was the perfect warm, chunky, thick soup to enjoy on a cold February evening!
4 red potatoes
3 medium carrots
1/2 large onion
1 tablespoon (about 3-4 sprigs) freshly chopped rosemary
1 15 ounce can great northern beans, drained
1 15 ounce can pinto beans, drained
1 15 ounce can diced tomatoes
2 cups vegetable broth
1 teaspoon onion powder
6 cloves garlic, pressed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 bay leaf
First chop up potatoes, carrots, and onions. Throw them in the crock pot. Add everything else! Cover and cook on 'high' setting of crock pot for 4-5 hours, stirring occasionally.
Ladle warm, heaping bowlfuls and enjoy!
We also added hot pepper flakes to some of ours (we LOVE spicy!) and it was great! Highly recommended.
