|threnody||09:37 am - Root veggie stew-type thing|
I was inspired after seeing a recipe in the local free paper, and though I'd intended on more or less following the recipe (roasting the veggies first, then putting it all in the oven for half an hour), this is what happened instead:
1lb new potatoes
2 huge carrots
4 small-medium parsnips
2 gigantic zucchini
3 small turnips
4 cloves garlic (chopped)
Spices as desired
Cut all the veggies into large hunks and dump them in a pot (it will have to be a LARGE pot). Cover with water, set to boil. After they've cooked a while and some of the water has boiled off, add broth- I added about half a box of low sodium beef broth, but any kind will do. Add garlic and onion powder, and anything else you like (my sister and I like our food bland, so this is actually all I put in). Put it on the lowest setting and leave it to do its thing overnight.
I woke up this morning to some pretty awesome food.

Oooh, parsnips. I love parsnips. I wonder if sweet potatoes would work in place of the new potatoes?

Probably (though new potatoes are South Beach friendly if that's the concern), but this is really pretty sweet. If you want to put sweet potatoes in, I'd take out the carrots. Also, I'd put in fewer parsnips (unless they just plain don't agree with me- I had parsnip burps all morning. Guh).

Ooh, they are? EXCELLENT. I might give this a shot with the crockpot. maybe use three parsnips instead of four...
*snickers* Parsnip burps.
