Delicious but add meat
I was not sure about the cooking time instructions and had never used these veggies but it was perfect! I used 3 lbs and added one cup of broth. It was perfect for 4 adults and 1 kid with a little bit left over. Next time I'd go ahead and make 4 lbs of meat. Everyone wanted seconds! Even with 3 lbs, total cooking time was 2.5 hrs.
