Butternut Squash & Potato Stew with Cabbage Steak

Updated: Jan 11, 2019


A fellow foodie, Amanda with A Simplified Kitchen, introduced me to meatless Monday recently. She explained that we use so much water just for one patty of beef and that reducing our meat intake for one day can have a significant impact on the worlds water reserve. So, I came up with this quick and easy slow cooker meal to hit the meatless parameters!


This dish is so easy! Seriously, it will knock your socks off how versatile and delicious!


Simply find veggies that need to be used up, throw them in vegetable broth, add herbs & spices, then set it and forget it until you are ready to eat! AWESOME SAUCE!

Alright! Let's get cookin' and spend some thyme together ya'll! Per the usual I included the basic ingredients you need for this recipe, the ingredients I used, and directions to follow along. If you modified something, then skip that step or replace the step with your own ingredient!
