Planning Ahead: Get Your New Year Stew On!

I like many of you have not been totally crazy about everything I’ve eaten these past few weeks. It’s inevitable with all the socializing the holidays bring that you’re going to have to make some compromises with your food choices. I don’t believe in a lot of restriction anyway, but like many, I sure didn’t “need” all those cookies! Well, there’s nothing to do about it now but eat to feel better. I think stews are a wonderful comforting and smart meal option, giving you the chance to load up on flavor as well as vegetables, grains and protein. Here are a few great stews to try in the New Year. They are all vegetarian but can easily include your favorite non-veg protein with a few adjustments.

To really bump up the flavor of your soups and stews, make some quick easy vegetable stock to use as the base. You can make it ahead and keep it in the fridge or freezer until you’re ready to use it.
