What’s For Dinner – Vegetable Beef Stew

Homemade vegetable beef stew

Vegetable Beef Stew

This is another one of our simple no-fuss meals that is perfect for busy lifestyles and healthy living.  Vegetable soup is so warm and comforting, and I find this recipe to be very filling.  The crushed tomato and chicken broth base cooks into a thinner soup, but if you’d like to thick it up, wait until the stew is almost done, and then remove 1/2 cup of the liquid from the pot and whisk in 1/4 cup of flour.  Stir in and continue cooking an extra few minutes to let it thicken up.  Enjoy!
