I absolutely love Alicia Silverstone’s book, The Kind Diet, where I found this fantastic recipe. Here is the final product of the recipe and trust me, it tastes even better than it looks. The recipe made a pretty large batch so I took my leftovers (this stew gets even better the next day) to our office potluck. It was a hit! Everyone was asking me for the recipe. I put it over cooked Arborio rice and topped it with fresh chopped cilantro. Even my carnivore boyfriend liked it and got full with one bowl.
