    Chandra M's Note:

    This stew is an entire meal, veggies and all. It is thickened just before serving with ground toasted rice, which gives it nice toasted undertones. I am sure other veggies could be added, but I think the green bean sweet potato combo is pretty good. Adapted from Secrets of Slow Cooking.
