Cooking with POTS & Pans

If you are ever looking for a filling and delicious soup full of veggies and light on calories… this is for you.

I adapted this recipe from the blog Fat Free Vegan Kitchen.  I made a few changes to mine based on preference, and you can always do that too!

Ingredients:

  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 ribs celery, chopped (ribs? who knew they were called ribs?)
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced (I don’t use garlic cloves so I threw in some garlic powder to taste)
  • 1/2 head of cabbage, chopped
  • 4 carrots, sliced
  • 1-1 1/2 lbs potatoes, diced in large cubes (I used 2 russet potatoes)
  • 1/3 cup pearled barley (I didn’t add this because I didn’t have any)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon rosemary, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, ground (the recipe called for ‘freshly ground’ but that seems a bit pretentious because pepper is pepper)
  • 8 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 cans great northern beans, drained
  • 1 14 1/2-ounce can diced tomatoes (I used diced with green chiles and it gave it a nice kick)
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
  • salt to taste

Directions:

Chop up your veggies.  If you’re a fellow spoonie, invite a friend over to help then split the stew.  I did it all myself and I made my symptoms pretty bad for the rest of the day.

    Looks delicious, but I’m glad Tom only shares a car with criminals. They deserve what they get. Cabbage always seems very fall-ish, but I’ll going to make this soon. I’ll add more protein cause that’s my jam. I know you’re not crazy about ham, but it’s lean protein not too bad on calories and TONS of salt. A potsies dream. My auto correct was determined to call you a footsie 😉

    • You’re so welcome. Forgive my ignorance, but what kinds of things do you have to avoid? It seems that gastroparesis varies from feeding tube to restricted diet. ??
