Day 12 - Five Layer Vegetable Stew

This isn't really a stew, but it is too soupy to be a casserole. It has a really good flavor, though, so I suspect with some tweaking, it can be perfect!

Five Layer Vegetable Stew
  • 2 cans white beans
  • 4 oz pesto
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 small russet potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 red bell peppers, sliced
  • 2 large zucchini, sliced
  • 2 large tomatoes, sliced
  • salt and pepper 
  1. In a food processor or blender, process the beans, pesto, and 3 tbsp olive oil until well blended and creamy.
  2. Heat the remaining olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the potato slices and cook until golden brown on both sides. Set aside. Add the onion slices to the same pan, and cook until browned on both sides.
  3. Spray the inside of a large crockpot insert with non-stick cooking spray. Lay 1/2 the potato slices in the bottom. Spoon a small amount of bean mixture on top of potatoes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Top with onion and red pepper slices, bean mixture, salt and pepper. Layer zucchini slices, bean mixture, and salt and pepper, tomatoes. Repeat the layers. If there is any bean mixture left, pour it on top of the final layer of tomatoes. Cover and cook on low 6 hours.
