This is one of my all time "easy" recipes. I ALWAYS have the ingredients on hand and everyone always enjoys it (except Brooklyn who HATES when I make this because of all the veggies in it). I don't know the specific nutritional information on this...but I'm thinking it has to be pretty healthy. It's almost 100% veggies.
Thanks to Matt's grandma for giving me this recipe (and bringing us a hot pot of it) on the night we moved into our first home together!
Block Party Stew
(give or take any of these ingredients according to your liking or to whatever you have on hand that day)
beans (pork-n-beans, chili beans, kidney beans, black beans--whatever)
chicken or beef stock
salt & pepper
Brown meat (I use turkey) and season with salt, pepper and whatever else you want. I use garlic salt and some cumin . Throw in onions so they can soften up while meat is cookng--celery too if you're using it.
Then add in all remaining ingredients and heat to a boil. Simmer until potatoes and carrots are soft. (tonight I substituted vegtable juice for the tomato sauce and paste--and it's just as good) Serve with cornbread or crackers.
I like to put this on around noon and let it simmer all afternoon until Matt gets home from work.
