I also enjoyed this unusual and healthful stew. The only change I made was to use sweet Italian sausage, which I browned first. We like stew fairly thick so I also added some corn starch at the end.

This was one of the most unusal, but tasty stews I've ever made! BF really loved this. The colors were just eye-popping. I did substitute the green pepper with a red one and didn't use the tapioca. I also used sweet italian sauasage. Anyhow, it was really yummy- very fresh tasting. I actually made this stovetop rather than stockpot- I sauteed the onions and celery and pepper, then added the potatoes and tomatoes and sausage and simmered til done- Easy! I used homemade vegetable stock rather than beef broth too. Since I didn't use the tapioca it was a tad thin for a stew by my standards, so I smooshed some of the potatoes with my potato masher at the end of the cook time, which worked just great. Sweet, sort of tangy, just altogether wonderfully unique! Thanks, NurseDi for a real switch from the norm!
