One of the more frustrating convenience foods I’ve had to give up is commercial stock and broths. Every single brand here in the states contains onion and garlic! Onions and garlic contain fructans and we have yet to trial them with our boy so they’ve been out.
Yesterday was a grey, gloomy day so it was a perfect day for stew! It was rather easy and I can honestly say, I did not miss the flavor from onions and garlic in it! It was very tasty! I couldn’t fuss around getting a better picture because the smell was driving my kids crazy and they wanted to EAT! 😉
1.5 C water
3 Russet potatoes
3 Celery stalks
2 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp dried thyme
1/4 C fresh basil shredded loosely
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 C. potato starch
Throw it all in the crock pot in the morning and enjoy that evening! It was really thick so if you like it soupier, add more water.
