    pattikay in L.A.'s Note:

    This is a simple, hearty stew adapted from the More with Less Cookbook. The crushed red pepper is my own addition, and of course it's optional if you don't like that sort of thing - but I like it to have a little zip.

      I used beef stock, and added a chipolte bullion cube (found them at Walmart in the Mexican aisle). Served it over rice pilaf. It was good, hearty and filling.

      Great, hearty filling stew...perfect for a cold winters nite...loved the extra kick &heat of red pepper- I used seeds from my own dehydrated hot peppers and a bit more then suggested...I also added my own other seasonings in during the sauteing stage and more to taste as I went with it...Used all veggie stock & ended up using red split lentils ('cause I wanted to save my whole ones for sprouting) and ended up really pleased with the way they creamed into the texture...the carrot and tomato lent a nice sweetness that balanced the spicy and nutty notes... Thanks pattikay! ->->->Made playing "I Recommend..." and yes I do!!!... :)

      Terrific! I made this tonight with #209011 and it was a good combination. I used 2 cups of chopped tomatoes from my garden, for half a recipe; and I didn't use celery. Used about 1/16th tsp. of cayenne powder, which was mild, but worked for my tender children.
