Vegetable Stew Recipe (Slow Cooker)


Perfect for a chilly winter's day, this hearty vegetable stew will fill your belly and warm you to the core. I love anything that is loaded with vegetables. I don't feel the need to have meat in every meal, but I think this stew would fill even the carnivorous eater. 

I tossed the ingredients together at 6am on Sunday morning and it was beautiful cooked and thickened by noon when we returned from church. I hope you and your family enjoy this stew as much as we did.
