Yields1 ServingPrep Time15 minsCook Time2 hrsTotal Time2 hrs 15 mins

Is there a better way to end a bountiful summer than with a simmering pot of fresh vegetables from the garden or market? There's really not. Oh, and it's another one-pot meal so it's easy to make and easy to clean up. It also needs some time to cook so it's perfect for making ahead of time.
