This is a quick, delicious, low-fat stew that isn't just for Springtime, in my opinion. I got this recipe from my Mom, I think she found it in Cooking Light magazine.

Great recipe! I didn't have any leeks on hand so subbed green onions, which I needed to use up anyway. I also definitely added far more tarragon than was called for. We loved this, and will be making it many times! Thank you!

This is fantastic!! 5 + stars. Everyone raved about the flavor.I have never made a stew like this.I added fresh mushrooms and dried tarragon. Next time i'm going to make a side of lemon rice for a side to add if anyone wants.Thanks,Linda.

I was sooo excited to see this recipe posted! I used to take Cooking Light Magazine and made this for my mom and sisters when they visited. It became an instant family hit! Tonight my mom and one sister are coming through town and I'm going to make it! I like to add a large chunk of seared halibut in the middle of each bowl right before serving; delish!
