The recipe below is for a basic vegetable stew and creates a good foundation for your own personal embellishments. Change up the vegetables to your liking. Cubed pieces of meat can be added to the butter/oil and sautéed with the vegetables. Field Roast Grain Meat Co. makes a Celebration Roast that is a tasty and vegan option.
Wine is a great addition to the sautéing vegetables and/or meat. Serve with a full bodied wine and some crusty bread. Winter warmth in a bowl.
The stew can sit on the back burner until people are ready to eat.
