I stumbled upon this recipe as I was preparing my meals for the week. I was at a complete loss as to what to cook up that I wouldn’t mind eating for five days. I knew that I needed to come up with a meal that was:

  1. Quick
  2. Easy
  3. Consisted of food that I already had in my fridge

I closed my eyes and threw some things in the pot and ended up with this gem.

So, without further ado I present this 10 ingredient vegetable noodle stew that will leave your stomach full and your taste buds singing!

Here are the ingredients you’ll need:

1 clove garlic

3 celery stalks

1 white Japanese sweet potato (or any potato variation)

2 cups kale

2 tbsp olive oil

32 oz. vegetable broth

1 1/2 tsp garlic salt/ salt (add additional salt to taste)

 

Instructions:

  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot, over medium high heat.

  3. Add minced garlic halfway through cooking the onions.
  4. While the onions are cooking chop up the celery, carrots, and potato.
  5. Add the vegetables to the pot and let cook with top on for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  7. Bring the broth to a boil, and add the pasta noodles.
  8. Let the noodles boil uncovered for 6-7 minutes.
  9. Turn the heat down and add the kale; place the top back on the pot.
  10. Once the kale has softened, remove from the heat.
  11. Add salt to taste.
