The Best Vegetable Stews
As cooler temperatures begin to blow in many of us slow down when it comes to cooking. Whether it’s a crockpot, Instant Pot or a dutch oven, stews and slow cooking recipes are back. Soups and stews are a must-have during the colder seasons and we’ve got our three favorite vegetarian recipes below.
Shopping for vegetables
Hearty vegetables are very easy to shop for. Potatoes, carrots, onions and squash are just a few root vegetables that can stand up in soups or stews. When shopping for these items just make sure there are no squishy spots or tendrils sprouting from them.
How to store vegetables
Once home, you can store your vegetables in a cool, dry place. It may be tempting to wash the dirt off immediately but they last longer when they are dry. Minimize the amount of light to prevent sprouting.
How to wash vegetables
When you are ready to make your soup or stew you can wash and prep your vegetables. Arm & Hammer Fruit & Vegetable Wash is a great way to rid your tubers of dirt and pesticides. Made with pure and simple ingredients, just spray your vegetables with this handy wash and gently scrub with a soft-bristled brush or towel. Then rinse underwater and you are ready to start your slow cooking journey.
