Mixing Summer & Fall (Winter) Veggies

Posted 10/16/2017 6:52am by Gayle Ganser.

Hello Eagle Point Family,

On Sunday we decided to make a meal in the crockpot! We thought we would be eating a soup after a hot day, but it ended up being a gloomy day. Perfect Soup Weather!

We gathered up lots of our own local veggies that we have at the market.  We surprisingly still have lots of summer produce but also lots of the fall/winter produce. Which was perfect, no using frozen vegetables in this dish (though you may need to if you make this after the seasons).

Here is an easy recipe for you, get everything together the night before and put them all in the crockpot in the morning. Your house will be smelling amazing once you get home from work or your day!

Vegetable & Beef Stew

Ingredients
Meat:
  • 1 lb . Stew Beef/Ground Beef

Produce:

  • 1 Cup Celery
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 Cup Candy Sweet Onion
  • 1 oz Tomatoes (I cut 1/4 of 2 tomatoes-mainly because I wanted the color of the red and the yellow) This can also be 1 oz can tomatoes if you are making this out of season.
  • Any Vegetables you would like, we chose:
    • 2 medium Carrots
    • 1/2 Acorn Squash
    • 1 Small Butternut Squash
    • 1/2lb Green Beans
    • 3 Medium White Potatoes

Canned Goods:

  • Beef Bouillon (We ended up using a little less than half a can(14.5 oz) of beef broth instead of the Bouillon)

Condiments:

  • 1 29oz Can Tomato sauce

Baking & Spices:

  • 1 tbsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1tsp Salt

Liquids:

  • 3 Cups Water

Instructions

  1. Clean, chop & peel (those that need it) up all the vegetables. *Check out our CSA blog on how to easily peel a butternut squash*
  2. Brown the ground beef adding the onion and celery a couple minutes before the beef is done.
  3. Dump the browned beef, onion, and celery into a 6 quart slow cooker. Add the remaining ingredients. Mix well.
  4. Cook on low for 8 hours. Before serving, taste the soup and add salt and pepper as needed.
     
  5. Enjoy!                

We hope you enjoy this recipe, it turned out delicious; it was easy to make and you can use any vegetables that you like!

Have a great week and let us know in the comments or on Facebook if you tried it!!
