Quick food: Stewed vegetables by Majnouna Quick food: Stewed vegetables by Majnouna
:pointl: Check out the book!

It's amazing how much you can lift a good old vegetable stew by adding the right spices. I tried curry for this one because I wanted to warm it up, but this is wide open for experimentation. There's also no reason why other vegetables couldn't be added or substituted, but I think the tomatoes are essential here. Don't worry if it looks like way too much vegetables when you start cooking: they quickly soften and settle into their juices. If you're not in a hurry, leave it to stew longer on low heat to get even more flavour out of them.

IMPORTANT NOTE: To preserve my sanity, I no longer respond to comments if doing so serves no useful purpose.
If you leave a comment thanking me for the recipe, I am grateful to you back even if I don't respond :hug:
If you say or ask something inane, dickish or lazy you will be ignored. Read the recipe and description in full and try to use your brain before touching that keyboard.
I trust everyone here's old enough to know which they fall under, if they don't hear back from me (then again, this site never ceases to amaze me.)

I think I'm missing something.... Is water added to the mix or will just the natural juices from the veggies be used? o_O    I don't often have the chance to stew things, so I must ask you to forgive my ignorance. ;)

Just the natural juices :) It was weird for me the first time too, but it's amazing how much juice will come out of them. Just make sure you keep the fire on low so they don't burn before they release their water!

Ah! My thanks, as that was leaving me thinking I had misread the rather tasty looking instructions. ^_^

The vegetables will also shrink when that happens, so if your pot looks way too full to stir at first, don't worry!

Good to know! But I might use an oversized pot, just because people in my house can't seem to resist trying to stir my work. I have to hang out in the kitchen armed with ladles and spatula, in my attempts to get them to leave well enough alone. :)
