Winter stew

Inspired by Frugal Queens most recent post I decided to make a warming soup/stew in the slow cooker, ready  to be divided up into individual portions which will be eaten over the course of the next week. I was half following a recipe from a cook book, half improvising- so here is my final recipe.

  1. One tin of smart price chopped tomatoes 
  2. Teaspoon of tomato puree
  3. Sprinkle of Italian seasoning, garlic and paxo stuffing powder
  4. Handful of pasta
  5. Some roughly chopped green beans
  6. Mushrooms
  7. Sweetcorn
  8. One carrot
  9. Half a tin of kidney beans
  10. Half a white onion
  11. Vegetable stock
  • Chop all ingredients which need it 
  • Make stock
  • Place all ingredients into slow-cooker, sprinkle seasonings 
  • Cook for approximately five hours
  • Serve with some chunky bread/baguette 
This little lot made four portions; one for tea, one for lunch tomorrow and two are in their plastic tubs ready to be taken to work on Tuesday and Wednesday. Simples.
