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 let everything slowly cook together.

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, it will thicken your broth to the perfect consistency. If you do not have corn starch on hand, you may also use all purpose 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 broth 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. Do not add more corn starch or it will get too thick.

    Tried this as a quick weeknight meal and it was a huge hit! So wholesome and satisfying without the guilt of a traditional pot pie. Will definitely be making again!

    Simple but delicious! Great blend of ingredients. Easy to prepare. Made double, one batch into crockpot for dinner and the other batch to freeze for another day. Great winter dinner idea! Thanks!
