I have not posted a meatless stew or a meatless vegetable stew in a while so I thought why not share this one. This will help achieve one of my New Year’s resolutions and maybe yours as well. Consume less sugar and less meat as possible! I will definitely need a lot of help since I love meat and I love sugar. Two bad things that are hard to avoid.
This is my almost ratatouille dish. I say ratatouille because it is a meatless veggies stew made with eggplant, chayote, tomatoes, and watercress. All the good vegetables that are full of great health benefits and easy to find in your supermarket.
Chayote is actually in season and although I enjoy it baked, when cooked in stews you get a plate full of healthy vitamins. Buy chayote that is firm with unblemished skin. It can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a month. It is fat-free cholesterol free, sodium free and a great source of vitamin C.
Here is a healthy stew to help you stay on the right track. Have fun cooking and creating your own veggies combination.
