    Dorel's Note:

    Remarkably similar in taste to real beef stew, but made with kidney beans for that no-cholesterol, no-fat goodness. I found this on web-site. Very tasty stew. You may add tamari (soy sauce) for colour, and a few teaspoons nutritional yeast flakes. I did not count in the time to soak beans overnight. Times are approximate.

    8. 8

      Mmm, it's been a long time since we sat down to a plate of stew! This was so easy to make and the portobello really gives it a meatiness. I didn't put the chili powder in - it just didn't seem to be the right blend of flavors to me, so I substituted with thyme and liked it very much. DH totally loved it. I thought the gravy was a little gray and looked unappetizing even with soy sauce added, so I will try some Kitchen Bouquet next time and see if the color improves. Thanks for the comfort food!

      Very good recipe, Dorel! I used a can of kidney beans and I left out the flour/cornstarch. This was very filling and had the right blend of seasonings for me. I'll be making this one again. Thanks for sharing!
