The peasant pot is a one-pot meal that is particularly useful when we aim to utilize leftover food from the fridge. The recipe presents versatility, allowing you to incorporate your preferred vegetables and meat. Besides the recommended ingredients, cabbage, carrots, zucchini, and parsley make beautiful inclusions. If marjoram or sweet paprika aren't to your liking, they can be eliminated from the recipe or replaced with spices of your preference.
