A hearty and healthy winter soup full of amazing flavor! I adapted this recipe from one on Allrecipes.com to make it easier and quicker to prepare as well as lower in fat and high in lean protein and healthy veggies with cancer-fighting antioxidants such as kale and cabbage. I always make enough to feed an army, but halving is no problem. Kids love it, too.... Enjoy!
**CORRECTION: I had changed my original recipe in order that my Atkins-dieting husband could eat the stew, too. The verdict from the kids after making it a few times was a resounding, "Change it back!" It is much simpler, tastier and quicker to make this way.... So here I am, changing it back. I'm sorry, Geema, that you got to the recipe before then. :(
