When you grow your own vegetables, or are gifted with excess from a gardener friend, or you happen upon an excellent sale at the grocery store, a vegetable stew is always in order. It is so easy and so flexible.
Vegetable Garden Stew
One onion, chopped
One green bell pepper, chopped
One (or more!) clove garlic, chopped
One head of cauliflower, broken into smaller pieces
One can diced tomatoes
2 zucchini, peeled, sliced and quartered
Dash of salt, pepper, sage, thyme
In a Dutch oven, add all of the ingredients and enough water to not quite cover. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to low and simmer for about 30 minutes. Serve. Enjoy!
