"While this stew is wonderful warm served over rice, it's surprisingly good cold. Pour leftovers over cottage cheese for a satisfying lunch or quickie dinner. The flavors meld as the stew sits, so it can even be made early in the day and served at room temperature." I saw this in Vegetarian Magazine, and can't wait to try it!

S'kat, this is so funny, I posted the same recipe! Yesterday, when I was looking for mine to check ingredients, I came upon yours! So I printed yours and used it. I use rice wine vinegar in this when I don't have wine; I dilute it with about 1/2 water. I also use whatever mushrooms I have on hand; I had a box of Baby Bellas that I used yesterday. This is so tasty; I served it over brown rice and we all loved it!
