This is my very easy way to make the most delicious, tender veggies! The baby carrots, onions and butter make everything taste almost sweet! Very good!

2 cups
chicken bouillon, i use superior touch better than bouillon chicken base
4 Tbsp
1 tsp
dried thyme
1/2 tsp
italian seasoning
1/4 tsp
1/2 tsp
garlic powder, more if desired
medium-sized red or yukon gold potatoes, unpeeled and quartered or cut into large chunks
sweet onion, chopped (white or vidalia)
of a small bag baby carrots, more or less


1In large baking dish with lid, place all ingredients. *There should be enough liquid to just cover. Cover and bake in 350ºF oven for about 2 hours or til very tender. Stir occasionally. This goes nicely, (and easily), with roasted chicken which bakes for the same amount of time at the same temperature. A no-fuss meal!

*If you substitute chicken broth for the bouillon, you will need to add salt.

**You can remove veggies from broth and thicken to a gravy if desired. To make it into gravy, bring the broth to a low boil in a small frying pan or saucepan. Add 1 Tbl. cornstarch mixed with 1 Tbl. cold water. Pour in and stir for 1-2 minutes. It will thicken immediately. (*Add slowly to get the desired thickness of gravy.)
You may not need it all, or may want to add even more. (Thicken it to your own liking).

***You can also make this on the stove quickly if desired. Bring to a boil, then simmer til veggies are tender. About 20-30 minutes. This is nice for when serving with meats that take much less time such as pork chops.
