No recipe, just made it up ... primarily using ingredients (see above) available which were threatening to spoil.  The point was to slow cook, and not saute the veggies.  I think it came out pretty good.  I seasoned it with some fresh sage, rosemary, and thyme from my garden ... the first time i could spare any from the plants. I also use curry powder, perhaps just a mite too much.  Anyway i though it was good.

I'm slowly becoming a fan of slow cooking in my crock pot .

"about to die" - is that the results of eating your stew?
Boil it all together with water & ?

No boiling involved ... slow cooked it in the over at about 300 degrees for two three hours ... staging it of course.   The death would have been the vegies rotting and getting throw out ... their wretched lives having been for vein.  Now they fill my belly and nourish my soul ...

oven or crockpot?

... dutch oven inside the oven at about 250 degrees.  

Unfortunately, or fortunately, i tried to use the crock pot inside my oven and it cracked.  I guess you're just suppose to use the extra electrical appliance to heat it.  Too bad about that, too much extra equipment for me to store and maintain.  I see no reason that the dutch oven inside the oven will not do just as good ... just need to learn the times and temps for the right slow cooking.
Hmmm.. I would never think to put a crock pot inside an oven.  I use my dutch oven quite a lot. I use the metal knob extra since the plastic is not guaranteed beyond some temp. Mine is turquoise.
apparently you are a wise man.   The inner pot does look very similar to a dutch oven ... though made of a ceramic material ... there was no obvious reason that it would have cracked.  My thinking was ... why have two pots, when one would do just as well.  That thinking is good ... only thing you got to standardize on the cast iron and not the ceramic to make it work.   Actually now that i remember, the crock pot cracked when i trid to use it on the burners above.  There was this very loud crack ... scared the shit out of me.  It did, however, improve my life.  Now i get the best of all worlds, one multi purpose pot to store and maintain .
