Ingredients

    16oz sweet peas, rinse
    5.5 cups water
    4.25 c chicken, vegetable, or ham broth
    14 oz carrot chunks
    9 oz sweet potato in chunks
    7oz onion
    21 oz acorn squash (add after other things start to cook)



Directions

Toss everything but the squash into a pot. Bring to a boil. Simmer for a while. Add squash after other things begin to soften.
I don't like to tend this, so I bring it to a boil, then turn it off multiple times during several hours. Or you can slow cook in a crock pot.
This has about a cup more water than it needs, but I like broth.
Ingredients can be varied widely. This is just what I needed to use up in the fridge. Just use zero oil to keep this a very low calorie, high fiber & protein meal.
Enjoy!
