Three Animals and a Vegetarian Walk Into a Bar…

In my pantry today:

  • 1.5 c leftover cabbage
  • 1 can vegetable broth
  • 1 can chicken broth
  • 1 packet brown gravy mix
  • 1 tbsp. corn starch
  • 1 c. sliced raw spinach
  • 1 small carrot, poorly but thinly sliced
  • 2 c cooked Basmati rice

So there’s probably some cabbage leftover from last night’s jaunt down Stovetop Highway. Put it back on the stove, then pause and take a thoughtful moment for yourself. You deserve it.

While the pot is still cold (but warming to H) throw in your second six above ingredients. Stir until it is a murky brown mess, and bring it to a boil while not failing to stir regularly. Once the bubbles begin to appear, reduce heat to ML and let simmer until the carrots are at your preferred crunchsistency. Serve over rice while pondering how a pig, chicken and cow can get along so well with a can of vegetable broth. You might feel a twinge of animal gluttony shame, but this will taste enough like beef stew on a cold evening to negate any moral or ethical concerns.
