It will take:

  • 150g carrots (about 2 medium sized carrots)
  • 600g potatoes (about 5-6 medium potatoes)
  • 600ml natural vegetable broth or water (use half the amount initially and add more liquid as needed).
  • 50g onions (1 onion, smaller)

How to make a complete one-pot meal?

Wash and peel the vegetables and chop into cubes of your choice. Put the pot on the heat (prefer medium) and add the chopped onion and carrot to the bottom of the pot with a spoonful of water or stock. Simmer the carrot and onion mixture for a few minutes until the carrots start to soften slightly. Then add the potato cubes and the stock or water and cover with a lid. Cover and simmer over a medium heat for about 10 minutes until the potatoes and carrots are almost done, then add the cabbage. Add more liquid if necessary. Simmer the cabbage under the lid for another 2-3 minutes, until the cabbage is soft. Then turn off the heat and stir in the chopped fresh herbs and season with sea salt if desired. Allow to season for a few minutes and serve.
