Stews are one of the ultimate winter comfort foods. Here I posted a vegetable stew that’s loaded with aromatic spices that are common in Indian cooking. For the base of the stew I put warm spices such as, cardamom, garam marsala, cumin and turmeric into a coconut broth.
In the broth there are chunks of butternut squash, eggplant, baby bella mushrooms and chopped tomatoes. These veggies are “meaty” enough to even satisfy hardcore carnivores. To top off the stew, I garnished it with red chili for heat, cashews for crunch and a dollop of yogurt to cool it down.
One of the great things about this recipe, besides tasting great, it’s vegetarian and vegan friendly. Just remove the yogurt. So, the next time you feel like eating something comforting, reach for this recipe and dare to try something new.
