Timothy's Winter Vegetable Stew

posted 4/2/2020 8:48:04 AM by: timothy

  • 3 large leeks, white to light green area only, cleaned and sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced (or 2-3 tsp dried garlic)
  • 6 large carrots, diced
  • Entire celery stalk, diced
  • 1 large turnip, peeled and diced
  • 1 rutabaga, cubed
  • 4 cups potatoes, cubed
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1/2 cabbage, torn into 1-2" pieces


  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 3 tsp salt
  • ground black pepper, maybe 1 tsp


  • simmer aggressively for 45 min in enough water to cover the ingredients
  • mash at the end until the potatoes break up
  • serve with bread and butter.


If you put the leftovers in a large mason jar and add just enough water to completely cover the contents, you create an anaerobic environment, which allows it to last in a fridge for at least 2 weeks. Soup anytime you want it without canning.
