Vegetable Hotpot Recipe

 

 

  • 25 KG potatoes
  • 20 carrots
  • 5 heads of broccoli
  • 12 courgettes
  • 21 onions
  • 12 peppers (red)
  • 3 garlic
  • 1000ml olive oil
  • dried thyme
  • paprika
  • bay leaf (1 jar)
  • mustard powder
  • 1 bag flour
  • 500ml tomato paste
  • 3 boxes of stock
  • salt and pepper

Directions

 

Boil potatoes just lightly until about cooked. Chop vegetables

 

Place chopped veggies and garlic in a casserole dish or saucepan with 1 table spoon oil and sweat veggies for 5 minutes. (This means to put them (preferably) in a covered frying pan and let cook on low for about5 minutes — just long enough to take a bit of the crunch off, but not enough to cook them entirely.

 

Add the herbs and seasonings to the vegetables.

 

Mix mustard powder, flour and tomato paste with water and stock until smooth.

 

Pour mixture onto the vegetables and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.

 

Season with salt and pepper.

 

Place the potato in a bowl with the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil and toss until coated.

 

Season with salt and pepper.

 

Pile the potatoes on top of the veggies and bake in a preheated oven at 400 F for 45 minutes.

 

The potatoes should be brown, but if they're not you can grill them for another 5 minutes.
