Vegan Winter Stew

On cold winter days I find this soup perfect to warm the body but not too heavy when there is still lots of work to be done. You will get all the nutrients you need to keep your body fueled and full of energy.

I had some leftover veggies from my farmers market shopping trip. They were a little wilted and tired and I wanted to use them before I had to throw them out. A stew is perfect for a little veggie facelift!


  • basmati brown rice
