  • 1 cup carrots, chopped
  • 1 cup green beans or yellow wax, beans
  • 1 cup onions, finely chopped

2. Add all vegetables and seasonings.
3. Turn down heat to simmer and partially cover the pot.
4. Simmer until vegetables are tender.
5. Serve hot with crusty whole wheat bread and a light fruit dessert.
6. Variation: Almost any vegetable but onions, tomatoes, and the potatoes can be substituted for another vegetable.
