Southern Living. This is so wonderful with fresh butterbeans and fresh off the vine tomatoes. I serve this with other fresh garden veggies and cornbread. Great summer supper.

I added mushrooms when frying the onions. Later in the stewing stage, I added corn, slivered almonds, and a dash or two of creole seasoning. Good stuff!
