Dear Fall, I am so totally into you right now. Summer did not sit too kindly with me- she was hot and humid and I just didn’t enjoy her much this year. I’ve so been looking forward to making my favorite warming comfort foods, like this (No) Chicken Noodle Stew for example!
It was a gloomy, rainy fall day and I was trying to decide on something easy and warm to make for dinner. My first thought was soup! It’s totally soup season, yay! So I go through all the ingredients I remembered I have in my fridge to use up- also yay to using up produce before it goes bad! Onions- check. Carrots-check. Celery-check. Noodles-check. Having settled on making “chicken” noodle soup for dinner, you can imagine my disappointment when I didn’t have nearly enough vegetable broth… noooooo!!!! Already with my heart set, I thought really hard about how I could make this work anyway. The answer… stew!
This recipe comes together so quickly- which is my kinda meal! I bet if you wanted to add everything into your slow cooker (minus the noodles) and let it simmer all day while you’re at work, that would be an option too. Then add the noodles in the last 20-30 minutes and boom. Ready! I haven’t tested this yet, so if you do, be sure to tag me on Instagram or Facebook to let me know how it works!
So you sautee your veggies with some garlic and olive oil, set aside. Then you make the roux, add the veggies back in, boil your noodles and add those to the pot. Stir and serve! That’s it! So let’s get to the recipe already, shall we?!
