Perhaps the simplest meal I ever made – stew

I hadn’t had stew for a while, and I wanted it to be easy, so rather than thinking, checking recipes etc., I just did this:

Put a big pot next to my chopping board and cut up vegetables until the pot was three-quarters full.

These were the vegetables I had on hand that I put in:

  • carrot
  • potato
  • garlic
  • cauliflower
  • pumpkin
  • onion
  • tomato
  • cabbage

I put in chopped up soup meat, salt, black pepper, parsley, and basil – which I happened to have.

Then I just filled the pot with water to the top of the vegetables, then heated until boiled, and then simmered on low heat for a couple of hours.

And it turned out delicious.
