I made this for a special event dinner and everyone loved it. I added onions and used fresh chopped tomatoes. I found this recipe easy to make and will make it again. I loved the mint in the soup I added a little extra at the end just to give it a little aroma.

A wonderful vegetarian stew. I added a chopped onion for extra flavor. It didn't seem like there would be enough liquid while simmering, so I added another can of diced tomatoes. I also put some chopped mint leaves right into the soup as well as for garnish; it really did a lot for the flavor. Thanx for a tasty, healthy veggie stew. I'll make this again.
