If you love mushrooms, you'll love this vegetarian stew! From Vegetarian Passport by Linda Woolven. After reading Annacia's review I've added cayenne pepper as an optional ingredient for those who enjoy a spicier stew.

I like this very much on the whole but, contrary to what I expected, I found it rather bland as written. After adding some cayenne (about 1/2 a tsp) it was lively and delicious. Don't you just love it when good health and great flavor come together!
