Get the Best of Both Worlds When Spring is Hot & Cold

"It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold; when it is summer in the light and winter in the shade". -Charles Dickens

Spring is a wonderful time and the days feel bright and summery. We spend a lot of time outside, but the chill is still lingering. We crave fresh foods, but still get a little cold in our bones. I hope this light stew recipe gives you the freshness you crave, but also warms you up and keeps you cozy.

This picture was taken just after I put this together and it already looks delicious!

Enjoy the Fresh Flavors in my 'Crockpot Spring Stew' Recipe

1 cup zucchini squash, chopped
1 16oz bag of frozen vegetables
1/2 cup leeks, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 15oz can of garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 14oz package of Tofurky Italian sausage, chopped
5 cups water
2 bouillon cubes (I used Edward & Sons Not-Beef flavor)
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp dried Italian seasoning
1 bay leaf
pepper to taste

Place all ingredients in crockpot and cook on Low for 6- 8 hours, or on High for 3- 4 hours. Serve with crusty bread or with my Olive Oil Biscuits. Enjoy!
