Remarkably similar in taste to real beef stew, but made with kidney beans for that no-cholesterol, no-fat goodness. I found this on boutell.com 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.
