ok so I don’t have an accompanying picture, but this is going in my “what do you eat” tag because i think it’s just a really cool idea that not too many people realize can be done
pretty sure i mentioned the other day i made veggie stock/broth for the first time? there was no recipe, i just took all my frozen scraps and threw it in a pot (kale, parsley, red pepper, ginger root, celery) along with some garlic and baby carrots we had in the house that weren’t getting eaten
that took about 45 mins - 1 hr YAY SUCCESSFUL VEGGIE STOCK
buuuuut instead of freezing all of the stock i put some in a blender along with all the veggies i’d just finished boiling to create the stock, and pureed them
then after storing the puree in the freezer for a few days, i used it (and some of the stock) to make stew! again, no recipe…basically tossed what we had in the house in pot—golden potatoes, green & yellow beans, carrots, canned peas, quinoa—and seasoned with cumin, rosemary, salt & pepper
but yeah because of the puree there was no need to add any flour or cornstarch for thickener which is awesome and it added more fibre to the stew which is awesome and I DIDN’T HAVE TO THROW OUT ANY OF THOSE SCRAPS THEY ARE ALL BEING EATEN which is super duper awesome
p.s. it turned out v yummy. have to stop myself from gorging on it type of yummy
anyway just thought i’d share!
