You can’t beat a dish that is SUPER EASY to prepare!
Just chop up all your veggies and toss them into your slow cooker in any order, along with the vegetable broth. No need to sauté anything first. Just cook everything together, for an easy and delicious meal.
Once cooked, you will prepare your corn starch and water slurry. I do this by adding the ingredients to an airtight container or jar and shake them vigorously. You may also prepare this ahead of time, but remember to re-shake or stir before adding to your stew.
By adding this mixture to your pot of stew, it will thicken your broth to the perfect consistency. If you do not have corn starch on hand, you may also use flour if you’re not avoiding gluten. However, keep in mind, you will need roughly double the amount of flour vs. cornstarch to achieve the same thickness.
Once thickened, add your milk to provide a little extra creaminess. Then serve and enjoy! The soup will thicken even further as it cools. So don’t worry too much if it still seems very runny in your pot.
See how velvety the broth becomes once cooked with the corn starch slurry. An absolute perfect bite. I enjoyed mine as is in order to keep this dish low in carbs. But you may also serve with biscuits if desired.
