Irish Stew

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium to large yellow onion, peeled and quartered
2-3 medium carrots, peeled and cut into large bite-sized chunks
3 potatoes, scrubbed and quartered
1/2 medium purple cabbage, quartered
3-4 small, bit sized turnips
2 bay leaves
handful of cilantro
1 tablespoon dried oregano
2 cups hot water
2 stock cubes
2 cans worth of beans (mixture of kidney, black, chickpeas and other beans is good)
salt and pepper to taste

Best to do this in a pressure cooker, if you have one. If not use a heavy pot with a good lid. Heat the oil and add the onion and saute for about 5 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients (except for the water and stock cubes) and saute for about another 10 minutes. Add the water and stock cubes and pressure cook on high for 10 minutes. If you are not using a pressure cooker, then just bring to a boil, partially cover the pot with a lid, and simmer for 20-30 minutes, until the veggies are tender. Serve hot.
