This recipe is great for cold winter days. My kids love this and I feel good about serving it to them. It is comfort food prepared using only healthy ingredients. It tastes way too good to be good for you too.

This is a great stew! It was so easy to prepare too. I don't care for onions so I used extra carrots and celery and added some onion powder. This is rich and delicious comfort food!
