Jardinère de Légumes - French Mixed Vegetables Stew

French stew goes mostly for meats, however many vegetarian versions do exists and one among those vegetables loaded stew is this Jardinère de Lègumes. Légumes in French is Vegetables and not to mistake the word 'Legumes' with the protein rich beans varieties. This stew is seriously very easy to make, with fresh vegetables you can dish out this healthy and very colourful stew simply with butter, and flavoured with herbs along with vegetable broth. Usually during the peak season of fresh peas and young carrots, this stew is quickly prepared at home to serve along with mashed potatoes or else with grilled meats. However you can get canned Jardinère de Légumes or else frozen bags of this mixed vegetables easily from the provisional stores. Young carrots, fresh green peas and baby potatoes are usually used for making this popular French mixed vegetable stew. But still you can mix and match any seasonal vegetables available easily to prepare this colourful stew.

Jardinère de Légumes

Its not fresh peas season here, so i replaced the fresh peas with dried flageolet beans which i soaked and pressure cooked later for making this ultimate stew. Obviously the addition of flageolet beans doesnt change anything and tastes simply awesome when served along with rice and meat. However my kids love this fantastic vegetable stew with french fries and baguette. Definitely a complete meal, as this stew goes for mixed vegetables, this stew looks absolutely catchy and very colourful to eyes. Since young vegetables are used for preparing this healthy stew, those vegetables gets cooked quickly. If you are using our Indian pressure cooker for cooking the vegetables, trust me this stew gets ready within 15 minutes. Am running this month blogging marathon with Journey through the cuisines as this month's theme and i picked French cuisine. Obviously am posting French dishes name starts with alphabets.

  2. The ignorant me thought it was a jar of legumes or something like that and was looking for it in your platter of vegetables. 😀
