  • Use any vegetables you have on hand, such as bell pepper, greens, sweet potato or winter squash and cut the pieces into similar sizes for even cooking.


I made this recipe with my 6th grade classes this week. We wanted to use produce from their school garden, so we used carrots, fennel, and kale. We left out the celery for fennel and just added the kale. It was really tasty! We had an adult suggest adding sausage to make it more of a meal, but I love that it's vegeterian. Thumbs up for this one!
