French Vegetable Stew

French Vegetable Stew

The French use seasonal vegetables to create their “stews”, and here we have a collection of their Spring vegetables.

These ingredients come together to create an amazingly flavoursome dish.



  • 4 tblsp olive oil
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 2 leeks, using white part, chop into small pieces
  • 6 or 8 artichokes, depending on size, cut into half
  • 3 small turnips, cut into small pieces
  • A bunch of baby carrots, maybe 12-14
  • 500 gr liquid vegetable stock
  • 1 bunch of asparagus cut into pieces
  • 150 gr peas
  • 150 gr beans (broad beans if you have them)
  • 6 sprigs of thyme
  • 2 tsp tarragon
  • 1 tsp herbs de Provence
  • 1 tblsp lemon zest
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper (I like to use the pink salt flakes)
