Vegetable And Millet Stew

This is an inexpensive hearty meal that is very filling! It is one of my own concoctions. I invented it while continuing to use up food I have stored at home. My monthly grocery bill continues to be very low, since I am using up what I have on hand right now. This is nice and hearty and filling! This entire recipe cost me less than $3! Serves 8-10 people.



  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 cup millet
  • 1 (28 oz.) can of tomatoes
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 (19 oz.) can of corn
  • 1 (14 oz.) can of green beans, drained
  • 1/2 cup instant mashed potatoes (or 1 potato diced)
  • 2 tsp. herbes de provence (or mixture of thyme, rosemary, oregano, basil)
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. sambal oelek or hot sauce (optional)


Put everything in a slow cooker and mix well. Cook on high for about 4 hrs.

Note: The instant mashed potatoes give the stew a bit of a thicker consistency. If you use a regular potato, that's great, but it won't be as thick.


Servings: 10
Time:10 Minutes Preparation Time
