This is an old fashioned recipe shared with me by my good friend from Nova Scotia. All ingredients are naturally gluten free.
Make it when veggies are in season. I buy my veggies from the local farm, they are picked fresh daily so you know you are getting the best quality and you are supporting a local business.
I also grow a lot of my own veggies, so handy to just pop into the garden and pick what you need. Delciious.
- 1 cup fresh beans, green and/or yellow
- 1 cup fresh chopped carrots
- 1 cup fresh peas
- chopped turnip (your choice)
- chopped broccoli if you wish
- 1 lb new potatoes, cubed
- chopped onion
- seasonings to taste
- pan fry onions in butter
- cut/cube, boil all veggies until tender
*** Hint: Waste not want not.
I frequently save the liquid from cooking veggies and potatoes to use as stock for my soups. I also poach chicken in water and save the liquid to use as a base for my chicken soups.
Make white sauce using gluten free flour. Mix all veggies into sauce.
It is delicious on its own or as a side dish in a meal. Serve with fresh cooked fish or steamed chicken. Make a bit pot and serve it with some different meals during the week.
Hodge podge is a great way to get more veggies with fibre in your menus. To make sure I have fresh veggies in the winter I always buy more than I need and freeze the rest.
