Vegetarian stew inspired by the famous southern dish. Not particularly authentic, but delicious nonetheless. Wonderful to use up tons of fresh veggies--a real comfort food. Use any combination of veggies you like, below is only my preference. I would imagine bell peppers would be good, I just don't like them and have left them out. You could also add beans or even red lentils if you feel you need the protein.
This is not spicy at all, so if you are into spicy, add some cayenne pepper, chili flakes, or diced jalapenos.
