How to Make Vegetable stew (can add chicken or fish, too)
- 1In a medium sized soup pot put oil and onion over low heat and let the onions get nice and translucent.
- 2If adding chicken do so now, sprinkle it with some salt and pepper and put it in the pot skin side down and brown it up for a few minutes. If adding fish that step comes later to adjust for cooking times.
- 3After the chicken has cooked for about 5 minutes add the tomato puree.
- 4Let the puree simmer for about 10 minutes, it should thicken up at this point.
- 5Add the potatoes and carrots and cook for about 5 minutes then add the rest of the veggies.
- 6If you're adding fish, now would be the time to do this. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and lay on top of veggies(soup should be pretty dense by now.) Let the stew simmer for about 10 minutes. Check to make sure the fish/chicken is cooked through and the veggies are done, too.
