If only you could throw food into a pot and come back in an hour to a delicious home-cooked meal. This recipe allows you to do just that! Toss vegetables into a pot with broth and let it all simmer together. In 60 minutes, you’ll have a tasty soup that’s just waiting for you. Now, if the table would set itself, preparing dinner would be a completely hands-off experience… We can dream, can’t we?
