Erin's Easy and Tasty Stew
from: Erin - Calgary, Alberta, Canada

This is a recipe I created out of a need to have thick stew that would satisfy me and take the place, somewhat, of the chicken stews of old
I used to make on a day when I needed a delicious comfort food. Enjoy!

Add the following to a large pot or a crock pot.

  • 4 cups vegetable broth (canned or homeade)
  • 3 handfuls of barley
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons miso paste
  • 2 tablespoons canned green chilies
  • 4 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 teaspoons celery salt
  • 1 can navy beans (or any beans you love)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • a good splash of your favorite wine or beer
Add all ingredients and cook for 5 hours or until thick and delicious.
Great in a crock pot.
Serve with bread and butter or tahini.
I love this!!
Add what ever else you love, but this is how I like it.
Good eating!
