Crockpot Vegetable Stew #SoupSaturdaySwappers

Enjoy a satisfying and healthy vegetable stew, without heating your kitchen up, by making it in a crockpot!
Crockpot Vegetable Stew
My family thinks I'm weird, but I can eat soups and stews all year long. There is something so comforting about a big bowl of hot soup, and it's the perfect way to easily get in several servings of those healthy veggies we need. This month, the Soup Saturdays group is making English Stew, a theme chosen by Sneha of Sneha's Recipes. (Details below)


Crockpot Veggies
This stew is incredibly easy to make, and very versatile. Don't care for green beans? Leave them out and use broccoli instead. Like peas? Go ahead and add some, make this soup your own. I do recommend leaving the sweet potato in though. It gives the stew a slight sweetness that is oh-so-good. My husband likes his soups and stews to be a little on the sweet side, and this is the perfect way for me to give him that, without having to add any sugar.
  Vegetable Stew

Crockpot Vegetable Stew

Ingredients

4 cups vegetable broth
2 cups Yukon gold potatoes, scrubbed clean and cubed
1 1/2 cups fresh green beans, cut in half or thirds
2-3 carrots, peeled and cut into coins
 1 large sweet potato, peeled and cubed
1 medium onion, halved and cut into thin slices
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt
Pepper to taste

  Directions

Add all the ingredients to a crockpot and stir to mix.
Cook for 3 hours on high, then remove about half of the potatoes to a plate and mash them with a fork.
Return potatoes to the crockpot, and stir gently to combine. (This helps thicken the stew without adding any flour).
Let simmer on low for one more hour, taste for seasonings and serve.
