Slow-Cooked Vegetables Recipe

I like to simmer an assortment of garden-fresh vegetables for this satisfying side dish. My sister-in-law shared the recipe with me. It's a favorite at potlucks. —Kathy Westendorf, Westgate, Iowa

"My family doesn't care for tomatoes so I left those out of the recipe. I used half of a green bell pepper and half of a sweet red pepper. I also added some broccoli and zucchini. I liked the slightly sweet taste of the vegetables, but my husband and son didn't think it had much taste to it. It made an easy meal to simply serve the veggies over rice, but I won't make it again since my family didn't really care for it."

"Wonderful vegetable recipe. I use a can of tomatoes, instead of fresh. Creates a lot of juice/sauce, really good served over rice."

"This cannot be correct. There's lots of fiber in this vegetable dish!!"

"Under nutrition facts it lists 0 grams of fiber; is this right?"
