  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (15 oz) diced tomatoes

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

Instructions

  1. Prepare the Ingredients: Dice the potatoes and chop the bell peppers. Chop the onion and mince the garlic.
  2. Sauté the Aromatics: In a skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and sauté until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the minced garlic, smoked paprika, ground cumin, and dried oregano. Cook for another minute until fragrant.
  3. Combine in Crockpot: Transfer the sautéed aromatics to the crockpot. Add the diced potatoes, chopped bell peppers, rolled oats, diced tomatoes (with juice), and vegetable broth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Cook the Stew: Set the crockpot to low and cook for 6-8 hours, or on high for 3-4 hours, until the potatoes are tender and the flavors have melded together.
  5. Finish and Serve: Once the stew is cooked, give it a good stir and adjust seasoning if needed. Ladle the stew into bowls and garnish with freshly chopped parsley.
