This is a recipe that I modified when my husband was diagnosed with diabetes. In the past I added potatoes, which cooked apart and thickened the stew. But since white potatoes were out of our diet, I needed something to thicken it. I read that oatmeal is great for thickening soup, so I gave it a try...it worked like a charm! Makes 4 generous servings at 4 WW points per serving.
