Broadmead Friends Meeting Recipes
Cook in a crockpot on high for 3-4 hours:
Cook until vegs. are tender (about an hour).
This freezes well. It may be thinned with either milk or water.
Fresh green beans make a nice addition.
Homemade Vegetable Stock
In a stock pot or other large pot combine 5 cups vegetables, seasonings, and 6 cups water to make 3 to 4 cups stock. Simmer until the vegetables are completely softened, 45 to 60 minutes. Strain, pressing down on the vegetables to extract the juices. Season with salt and pepper to taste (optional). Let cool uncovered, then refrigerate until ready to use.
Not having all those fresh herbs on hand, I used 1/4 cup of dried parsley, 1 t. dried thyme, & 1 bay leaf. If you have a large tea egg you can put the seasonings in that if you don't have cheesecloth handy.
