Method

  • Wash and peel all the veg and cut them into large chunks at an angle.
  • Melt the butter in a large sauce pan and add the chopped onions once melted.
  • Cook the onions until they soften and are coated in the butter. Around 4 minutes maybe.
  • Add the herbs then and stir to coat the onions in the herbs.
  • Then add the flour and stir to make sure this mixture doesn’t stick to the pan. Let the flour and the herbs cook with the onions for a few minutes so the butter absorbs the flavour.
  • Then add the stock very slowly. Add in just a little bit at a time stirring all the time. This will form a kind of gravy-like liquid.
  • Then add in the rest of the vegetables and if you think the mixture needs more liquid just add in a bit more boiling water.
  • Add some black pepper and salt if you think it needs it (I didn’t use salt).
  • Put a lid on then and let it simmer on a low heat for around an hour or until the veg are cooked.
  • Serve with spuds anyway you like!
