Three Sisters Harvest Stew

This comes from a great book. Cooking Like a Goddess by Cait Johnson. The "sisters" are corn, squash, and beans. This is a hearty vegetable stew that'll warm you body and soul after a crisp fall day of raking leaves. Pair with crusty bread and apple cider, mmmmm. I've served this with great success at quite a few pot-lucks.

ingredients

directions

  • In a large stew pot, heat the olive oil.
  • Add the onion and stir to coat with oil.
  • Saute until golden, then add garlic, carrot, squash, beans, corn, sage, chipotle, and salt. Add broth a bit at a time until you are satisfied with the consistency.
  • Simmer until squash is tender, then add chopped parsley and stir.
  • Serve hot.
  • I often sustitute a 10 oz. package of frozen pureed squash for the cubed squash for a smoother texture.

    My mom introduced me to this soup. We love it! I go easy on the Chipotle because my 3yo doesn't like spicy, so I just add a few sprinkles and add some paprika and thyme. Also, I add some chopped frozen spinach to it (about 8oz) and about a 1/4 - 1/2 bulgur. Makes the soup a bit more filling. Great find!

    Excellent stew, very filling, too. I love anything involving squash. Before serving, I took my stick blender to the pot and pureed a bit of the soup. Not all of it, mind you, but just enough to give it a smoother texture.

    I liked this well enough, so did my boyfriend. But something seemed to be missing. I cooked it in the crock pot while I was at work, maybe that's what did it I should try it on the stovetop next time. The chipotle chile really made it good, I added 2 instead of 1 though. Thank you so much for sharing it Kitsune!

    My husband and I really loved this soup. The whole dried chipotle slowly cooking in with the soup gave it a subtle, mellow heat. Mixed with the sweetness of the carrots it was perfect. I definately say use the whole dried chile if you can. The ground powder wouldn't be as subtle. Also, I wanted a slightly thicker broth so I stuck my immersion blender in for a couple a seconds and it did the trick beautifully.

    I added chicken to the mix just because I didn't want to fry it, and substituted black eyed peas for chickpeas. A dash of cinnamon instead of the peppers, and it came out really well! The squash isn't overly squashy, and the whole blend comes through superbly.
