I had a bunch of onions because apparently both my husband and I bought extra thinking we were almost out. I also had a few potatoes. Knowing how much my family loves onions, I decided to thaw some of my marinara sauce and make some good old fashioned stew like my mom used to make.
Of course I left out the beef, and had a LOT of onions and various other things in mine:)
6 small to medium onions, cut into 4ths
4 potatoes, cut into 4ths
1 1/2 cup diced bell peppers (I had some various types in freezer bags already diced)
4 pearl onions (because I had them leftover from something)
1-2 cups frozen corn
1-2 cups frozen/fresh spinach
1 1/2 cup cooked lentils
1 1/2 cup cooked white beans
3 heads of Roasted Garlic
1 quart of Hearty Vegetable Marinara
Throw everything into a pot, add some extra vegetable stock if you want more liquid, but I like my stew super thick.
This recipe is kind of like Barney Stinson's "how to run a marathon" comment... Put it on the stove, in the oven or in the crockpot. Turn it on. That's it. I just let mine cook on medium/medium low all day long... delicious stew for dinner!
