Syn Free Vegetable Stew With Orzo | Slimming World

As I’m writing about this Syn Free Vegetable Stew With Orzo, it’s a mirky, cold Sunday afternoon. Perfect weather for staying in and cooking something that will warm the cockles of even my stony, dead heart.

But I’m a bit lazy, if truth be told. I’m not the biggest fan of slaving over a stove for hours on end to produce a nice meal that only I will see and taste. I’m not spending THAT much time on myself.

So I turn to my trusty Instant Pot for some assistance. I’m able to delicately (violently) chop some veg, peacefully (viciously) whip up some stock and lovingly (filled with hatred) put some other bits and bobs in the pot.

This means I’m able to get a lovely stew cooked in time for tea!

Best to start off with a pressure cook to make sure that all the veg is cooked, and then finish it off with a slow cook to make sure that all the flavours are at their very best.

I like to use the Instant Pot glass lid when slow cooking, so I can keep a beady eye on the contents.
